Some users may see the following error message in Ballot:
"Fatal Error! [-2146233079 This implementation is not part of the Windows Platform FIPS validated cryptographic algorithms.]"
If you receive this error, your system's cryptography is configured to use FIPS-compliant algorithms for encryption, hashing, and signing. Because Ballot is not compatible with this style of encryption, you will need to contact your IT department to disable FIPS in order to continue using the software.
