24. And one more time ... PLEASE READ THE ARTICLE
I won't repost my comment that I've already posted twice in reply to folks saying "We use paper ballots here, so no probs!"

If that's your understand, than either you folks haven't been paying attention, or I haven't done a very good job over the last 5 years or so!

So, again, READ THE ARTICLE!!!
