Hart Intercivic Voting Machines Cut off Candidates Name on the Summary Page

Please. Another reason why paper ballots trump electronic voting machines- the machines can't do a WORD WRAP??? It's absurd that you have to wonder if your vote for Bill Moody was the right one when it comes out William E "Bill"....

After all the early campaign banter about how names of the independent candidates for governor would appear on the ballot, some Texas voters won't even see the full name when double-checking their choices.

The summary portion of the electronic ballot chops off names longer than about 15 letters, so voters choosing Kinky Friedman see "Richard 'Kinky' F." Carole Keeton Strayhorn becomes "Carole Keeton St." And Texas' senior senator? Just call her "Kay Bailey Hutch."

The problem won't be fixed before the election, but voting machine manufacturer Hart InterCivic Inc. eSlate, and local officials, stressed that every candidate's name appears correctly on the voting screen, the Austin American-Statesman reported Thursday.
