Re: Polling (anti-absentee) header cards

If Barry Herron requested this, how many "Polling Header Cards" would he need?  Any particular color?  I currently have 11" card stock (non-scored) in the following colors: canary (bright yellow), salmon (orange-red), buff (orange), and cherry (pink-red).  Please post that to my personal email (ian@dieboldes.com) or fax in a sales order worksheet.  Just use the part description as noted above.  I'll create a new part number for this part.

Minnisota accounts currently count their absentees in the polls using absentee header cards after their polls close.  This delays the uploading of results, because of the time needed to physically feed the ballots.  They would rather feed the ballots during a slow period during the day.  Right now there is no (easy) way to get back into precinct count mode once the absentee header card is fed.
An obvious solution is a "Polling" header card that puts the AV back into this mode.  Its easy to implement, and will be in the next 1.95 ROM release, in time for their primary.  Ian, we'll get you the new script for creating the header cards.
