Re: VCProgrammer hooked to a ballot on demand printer

Global needs revenue during the election cycle.  What better way than to tap into the 800 Accu-vote customers.  
Print ballot and sell ballot shells that only have timing marks on the 8.5" edges front and back and print the text and diagnostic marks with ovals front and back on most laser printers for legal and letter.
What the hell, shoot me down.

Astute observation.  If you look at the white board in Tab's office, you'd see a design sketch exactly along these lines. 
Its also a good way to think about smart cards.  They are ballots created on demand.

Just read the VCProgrammer User Guide on the staff web site and thought - If we could hook that up to a small laser printer to do ballot on demand, then only the ballots required would be printed for the election, we could get a reasonable price and totally eliminate the local printing company.  Everything would be the same as the current VCProgrammer except it would print a ballot instead of creating a smart card.
Just a thought.
