I up and downloaded it through a Zope web interface (which has always 
been totally successful before). I don't know what mode Zope uses, but I 
assume binary. It seems strange that if it was corrupted, it would open 
and sort of show up. All other corrupted PDFs I've seen open as a blank 
page numbered "1 of 0," or refuse to open at all. But, it could be anything.

If elections are just something where you go in, you push a button,
and go home, then it doesn't make much difference which button you push.
