18. Also note that Diebold simply makes the machine and
the paper, it does not assign the bubble number to the candidate. That was probably your good old County Registrar of Voters. So at least one thing isn't Diebold's fault.

If Vermont is going to continue to use these ballots and going to continue to fold them, the folks in charge should get a sample scan card, fold it how they plan to, unfold it, and then make those bubbles within however many centimeters of the fold off-limits for use.

Does Vermont have count watchers who could look out for this kind of thing and maybe flag it as a problem that needs to be hand counted?

Also, I hope this is an old post and that it is already safely submitted and not lost in the mail.
