RE: AccuVote Tape

I know this has been requested before.
I will pay $1 for a copy of the previous RCR.
Please change the order of the "write-in" line on the AccuVote Tape.  It always appears on the ballot following the candidate, but appears on the AccuVote results tape above the first candidate.  It would help us when we are doing testing and are looking for patterns of results e.g. 1,2,3,4 etc. to not have to rethink whether it is correct when we see a 4,1,2,3 order to the results on the tape.   
Doesn't sound hard.  Guy?
 If you can't do it, what is the logic behind ordering write-in before candidate?? 
The number of write-ins is a race statistic, just like under votes.  It gets printed with the other race stats.  We don't track write-ins by oval, so the 4, 1, 2, 3 argument won't hold with vote for more than one.  Putting the write-in total at the end shouldn't be a problem though if that is what you want.
