Global needs revenue during the election cycle.  What better way than to tap into the 800 Accu-vote customers.Print ballot and sell ballot shells that only have timing marks on the 8.5" edges front and back and print the text and diagnostic marks with ovals front and back on most laser printers for legal and letter.

  Uhhh, there's a certain problem with getting proper registration between the timing marks and the ovals.  If you don't print them in the same pass, you need very accurate alignment for successive runs.  Laser printers can't do it accurately.

  If you're going to use laser printers, you'll need to print the works in one pass.

  Sorry Greg.
