If the red on the famous names ballot was created for
infra-red then why do all the visible light lottery readers located in every
little corner store use red 032 Warm Red ovals (rectangles) on the lottery
I am aware of your
options on red and thick ovals. Fortunately, most sales people are able to
get "thumbs up" from standard ovals.
The red on the
famous names ballot was created for the inferred readers. The whole point
on going to the new visible light readers was to eliminate the need to print red
ovals invisible to the old inferred reader. It is actually a "bug" in the
visible light reader that it cannot see pumpkin.
Voters with limited vision, (over 40) find the red oval
easier to see. After many successful elections using the thin black
oval, the comment generally heard is "It's a great system but if you could
make the ovals a little darker it would be even better."
The election committee (Councillors and staff) for the City
of Brampton rejected our system because of the thin black ovals. Ballots
were created using thick red (032 Warm Red) ovals and we are
now Brampton's vendor of choice.
Instead of a possible negative the Global ballot with the
thick red oval gets thumbs up.
My concern is the visibility of the current standard
thick oval in orange, (not the orange ovals on the Toronto ballot because
they were at least twice as thick as the standard thick oval and created
manually for a special purpose ballot).
Which red is used on the famous names ballot?
