Re: NEXT SHELL & Postscript Question



John: I'm not sure if it would matter what version the election would be in. I see it being used as we do the Famous Names memory card and ballot. We could print them in bulk and carry it as a supply item. I'm not aware of anyone uploading these results, only using the Accuvote tape. Some of the schools and groups in Jeff Co use a laser printer to over-print the names on the shell. Let me know what else you would need on this one and I can do it for you.

NEXT Question they have sent me a postscript file for there bilingual ballot and would like to see what our layout would look like, hard copy of their existing ballot is to follow.Who would like to pick up on this and develop some ballots for them to look at. Just as a point of fact- this is a hinge pin account in Florida meaning that we need to show off.They also questioned if we can do English on one side and Spanish on the other?

Back to the Shell question -Only to complicate matters they sometimes, but seldom, provide up to three style per school election.For what reason I dont know.Ballot on Demand sounds good and may be an answer, are we comfortable with BOD at this time?We can give them a generic database that they can manipulate and reprint with candidate names according to my pal Nel.

What is the average number of ballots per school election???  If the number of ballots per election is small and you were able to use Gems, why not do it as a complete service with programming & ballot on demand???

Folks,

A prospect runs school elections in a very large Florida County to the tune of some 25,000 ballots a year and averages two school elections a week across their county.

What experience, if any, do we have at printing a ballot shell with a single column, single row of ovals (say up to 12) and a blank header area.The idea is for the county to then print candidate names and school name in the appropriate area onto the shell customized to each election using in house MS Word and a connected printer.I would also assume it would be a single database shell, replicatedand used over and over with the county replacing names and headers for each election.Maybe we could provide candidate 1, candidate 2, candidate 3 in the database and they could change the names for each election.

As I read this now, Im certain its not real clear.

But if you have got the gist of this please advise if this is doable.

John
