a point of contention with the State of Florida. The State of Florida has to have this
fixed before we can continue with the phase 2 testing. When I spoke to Mike Lindsey this
morning, he is unwilling to schedule the next step until this issue is
resolved. The Florida SOS says
this is a requirement to be fixed.
I would like to get back with Mike for scheduling this afternoon. Do you have an estimate as to when
this will be ready.

This creates an
additional line of test and the final race in the column has the Header Font
size decreased in order to fit.
The point of contention was that this should not automatically be made
smaller, but should have forced this race to appear in the next
by design -- we even do it with paper ballots. The idea is that its
better to squish a race a little than to waste all the ballot real
estate in the rest of the column. Back in the VTS days it used to
be SOP to print out a ballot and then play with the font settings to fit races
a "point of contention", I we could make the amount we are willing to cram
configurable. That would probably be a good idea just in principle -- I
have never been comfortable with the hard-coded cram factor even with
paper. Some folks will tolerate more cramming than
said, what is the basis for the contention? I have seen statutes
that say that candidate fonts need to be the same size within a race so
that candidates are given a fair shake, but never that races have to be the
same font. If this is a statute in Florida, please quote the section so
we have it on record.
