Re: VoterComment

I see this type of thing all the time using an HP Laserjet 2100 Series PCL
in Alameda County.  I reported it to Tab in August.  He was sure at the time
it wasn't GEMS.  I reloaded the HP driver without help.  I have just lived
with it.  The "voter comment" will change to something else the next time
you boot up.  I finally went to printing off PDF reports to avoid it.

Since it is printing off something in the GEMS Database, I thought it was in
GEMS as well, but apparently it may not be.  I've had no fix for 7 months
and I'm not sure what to do about it either.
