After download complete - LCD displayed REMOVE MEMORY CARD
Reject blank ballot setting not operational
Observed no change is LCD display for overvoted races from previous releases

AccuVote counts number of ballots correctly regardless of AccuVote settings programmed


On Election Summary Reports - when Winner box is checked this is what occurred:
Race 1
Thomas Jefferson in Bold   - is winner
Race 4
Marianne Moore in Bold     had 1 of 2 votes   Carl Sandberg NOT bold - had 1 0f 2 votes
Race 6
Jim Thorpe in bold had 1 of 2 votes
Bill Russell  in bold  had 0 of 2 votes
Joe Dimaggio NOT in bold - had 1 of 2 votes

These are preliminary test results and should be treated as such.  Time did not permit extensive testing but hopefully this will get us headed in the right direction.

All tapes, reports and report parameters are available if needed.
