Designing a ballot 
20020426 

From Kelley: I want to design a ballot for four elections. Actually all the candidate races are on 1 ballot. I need to know how many different ballot styles would be needed for all of the candidates to be in each rotation an equal number of times. For example:  A,B,C & D are running for mayor
 E,F,G & H are running for congress
 I,J & K are running for senate
 L,M & N are running for governor
They are all on the same ballot. But in each race their name (for instance A) has to be in the #1 rotation, #2 rotation, #3 rotation, and #4 rotation for his race on this ballot an equal number of times as B,C and D. The same goes for the other candidates for their perspective races. How many total ballot styles will there be? Answered by Penny Nom.
