RE: Ballot editing with common Front Plates

Here's a few ways I have handled this situation in the past:
1) The printer creates a second front plate for the ballot which does not have a back (stripping out the VBS message).
2) If VBS language is not prescribed by law, consider creating second header for use on this style with wording such as Vote Both Sides (If Applicable) .
or 3) Add message This Side Intentionally Left Blank to backer.
I have seen all of these work in California. Hope it helps you in FL.

Subject: Ballot editing with common Front Plates

Time Frame:

ASAP, Osceola County FL ballots are already late to printer.



2 ballot styles have common Front Plates.

Need to delete a header from one of these, but leave it on the other.

Cannot edit one front plate without the edit reflected on the other.



One of these ballot styles has races on the back and the other does not. Need to remove the Vote Both Sides header from the ballot style that has no races on the back. Since the front plates are shared the removal is reflected on both, causing the two-sided ballot to lose the Vote Both Sides header on its front plate.



Is there a method to solve this dilemma? Is there a way to make the ballot styles use unique front plates?



Solution probably involves hidden/dummy races or headers or something similar that causes my hair to turn gray and fall out.


Thanks in advance,
