Serving rural communities where they Don't have a large service provider That's helping them take care of this Issue are you saying that the rural Community in my rural Am I saying that right rural the rural Okay you know what I'm saying as I Learned about this large swath of Americans rural very rural I realize This paper shortage could affect a lot Of people well I guess I gotta go find Some paper people oh wait there's more To talk about can it Tammy but can America just sneaks in printer paper Home from work like the rest of us I Went to run back election Services one Of the largest ballot printing Facilities to get an inside look at how Dire the paper shortage is we print a Balance for several States and counties Across the Nation we're in 23 States Plus Washington DC with some some of our Products wow so so you're a huge part of The voting process yeah we touch roughly 45 to 50 percent of the voters around The country you touch a lot of Voters Yep but with consent absolutely so What's going on with this paper shortage Yeah started during covet when the paper Mill shut down they couldn't generate More paper so they sold through all Their inventory and then when they Started going back to work they Converted to liner board for cardboard

Boxes right Amazon still needs to ship Things Bezos man and now we don't have The inventory any longer and so they're Trying to play catch-up and you're Saying there's a paper shortage Happening right now yes Foreign Jeff I don't know how to tell You this but I see a ton of paper around Here so what you see here on our Production floor is a fraction of what We need for the whole year every day We'll go through 65 of those rolls 65 of these roles yes Historically we could order paper and in Two to three weeks we would have what we Need now it's three to four months or More and that's been the problem this Year how bad are we talking like we Might need to start printing Double-sided bad or the majority of Americans won't get to choose their President bad well let's hope it doesn't Get to that everybody's working to avoid That very problem but we already do Print double-sided ballots so there is We already print on both sides of the Paper Jeff that means it's bad kinda walk me Through everything that would be Affected if the election Community runs Out of paper if there's no paper it's Hard to mail balance envelopes I voted Stickers and instructions voting Stickers voting stickers could be gone

Could be Baker's the best part of voting The only reason I vote could also do Digital stickers Instead of getting the physical sticker You get a digital sticker when you vote Jeff that's the dumbest thing I've ever Heard fair enough okay I just have a few More questions Ah yes What can Americans do to help with the Paper shortage Um stop wasting paper Cursive why am I writing in cursive stop Sting Paper All right you want to take me on a tour Sure I'm ready to go to work all right Let's go You're gonna wear a hard hat yeah that's What you do right no it was time to roll Up my sleeves so I didn't get ink on Them gross this paper Palace was pompan And it turns out there's a lot more to Printing than just hitting Ctrl P so This is where it all starts we get the Files from the county the PDFs so we can Start the print process ah let me ask You a question does PDF really stand for Please don't no I could see how crucial paper was to This process so every roll of paper will Generate about a thousand ballots when We're running in an election we'll be
