Bug in GEMS 1-5-1 and later

To all staff;
    A bug has been found in GEMS "Candidate Block Options" within the RaceEditor.  If a candidate block width is specified that is less than the race width then the voting positions printed on the ballot art work will not match the data downloaded to the Accu-Vote.  This option is usually used when trying to get candidate ovals to be place in the center of the ballot.
    The solution to this problem is to ensure the candidate block width in the race editor is > 32.  If you have already layed out ballots with this option and the ballots are printed then you will have to manually adjust the ballots so the ovals are back in the position as printed.
    We are working on a fix presently and will release it as soon as possible.
