Re: Equal space for first and last candidates

Thanks Ken,
 Global is renting Advance Poll equipment to Brampton.  They will be in the market for 100 AVs within the next six months.  Election Manager very particular.  I am doing the database for them.

Quick follow up to this after having looked at the example some more.  It is a little more complicated than candidate margins.  It can be done though with:
  • Oval/Box -> Oval Justification -> Vert -> Bottom
  • Oval/Box -> Shift Box ->Vert -> 18. 
I have to say though, does Brampton have a lot of free time on their hands or something?  Why not use the defaults and be done with it?  They seem to have every race drawing button turned on.

I have had many customer comments regarding the unequal space for the first and last candidates when double spacing.  I put in a blank header as the first entry in the candidate list, clicked the top line in another header with a thick L/R and dragged it onto the candidate list.  The spacing appears equal between the line and first candidate appears equal to the last candidate.

Re Ballots for City of Brampton.

We have received a first draft of the ballots for Ward 1, and I make the
following requests:
* Increase the white space above the name of the first candidate for
each race so that the white space above and below the name is the same
