Int'l went first class.

Our ballots arrived yesterday (Brazil, South America).  My wife will be dropping them in the mail this afternoon.  Free State, here we come!   :D

OH.  MY.  GOD.  

Damn ballots are getting to people on other CONTINENTS before they get here in Maryland.   :o     ;D

Oh.  Never mind, then.  I'll keep spraying WD-40 on my mailbox hinges, waiting for the underfed 3rd class mail burro to stagger up with my ballot.

I'm really not that worried about it; I'm sure it will get here in plenty of time; I just pity poor ECL -- they're going to get hammered with several hundred a day right up against the deadline.

We are discussing solutions to this very problem as you speak.   :)

Well, use Acrobat.  (Not Acrobat Reader, the real thing.)
If you want the text to show as Text rather than as images of Text, then you put it through an OCR program first.
I can do it for you if you send me a high-resolution scan (NOT JPG).  That would be too big for E-Mail, but you can send a CD or put it on a web site.

In reply to the PDF problem:

there are multiple ways, the first doesn't cost money:

Go to this Adobe link:
https://createpdf.adobe.com/index.pl/3856571569.05205?BP=IE&v=AHP

at the bottom of the page it allows you to sign up (free) and create 5 pdfs for free

the other solution is for the FSP to create an Acrobat Form from the PDF which could be sent out to people and filled out then sent back - don't know if anyone has experience using these forms - it works well - but I am unsure about getting the signature into it...

I suggest the first course of action
