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.
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.
