Steve: I am not sure exactly where you are talking about the ballots sticking.
I have seen ballots hang on the curved portion of the chute if the deflector
is out of adjustment and the chute gets hung up behind the edge of the
deflector. In this case the ballot is setting on the chute and it usually
the nest ballot that jams. If this is what is occuring just pull the chute
from behind the deflector and readjust the deflector.

We are experiencing ballots leaving the AccuVote-OS and getting stuck in the ballot path in an extraordinary number of ballot boxes, roughly 1/3 of them in Placer. Deborah is running into this in her small election this weekend. Ballots are getting hung up behind the back horizontal bar, as the ballot is entering the curved portion of the ballot chute. This is happening to too many of these to be a coincidence. This will cause jamming during the day in too many locations to deal with. We need to figure out what is causing this and have 1 week to get it resolved, before delivery of ballot boxes by drayage company. Who in McKinney should I work with on this? Steve Knecht
