Sacramento County pioneers Ballot-on-Demand in California

Today I became one of the first voters in California to receive a ballot-on-demand.  Sacramento county, where I live and vote, has implemented a new ballot-on-demand voting process where a voter can come to the county election office, request a ballot, and the ballot is printed on the spot.  This new approach to balloting will save Sacramento county potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars each election year by avoiding pre-printing thousands of ballots for early voting purposes.  In the long run, it may open the door to new approaches to voting altogether, enabling county-wide voting centers to serve voters from all precincts.  Kudos to Sacramento County for pioneering this innovation in California voting!
