Comment: the card can be uploaded. That's good.
However, in election mode, we cant get cards to run through it can we if we
don't get to run a zero report?? So card is worthless until
Yes, they can. That is unless you get a
"PRECINCT DATA" or "COUNTER" error.
Take care. I'm off to Powell River, back Tuesday.

Subject: Re: Report Failure
The 1.94w firmware does not keep a checksum on the
Accu-Basic report program stored on the memory card. It sounds
like that area has been corrupted on these but without a checksum, the
Accu-Vote doesn't recognize the fact and report the error until a report
is attempted. The audit report is generated by programming on the
ROMs and therefore is not affected by memory card corruptions.
Memory card duplication will duplicate corrupted data perfectly.
Treat these like other cases of memory card corruption.
They still have valid election and count data and could continue to be
used normally except for printing results and therefore compare to
getting a TEXT CHECK ERROR.
What is causing these and other corruptions is still
unresolved and the investigation continues...
BTW: All that I mean by corruption is that data has been changed in
an incorrect way. This does not necessarily indicate a problem
with the memory card itself, only with the data stored on it.
These cards are still capable
of printing audit reports and performing supervisor functions but
are no longer able to print any sort of TOTALS report.
If the offending card is redownloaded it will work
During one instance
Bill Vandenburg of Atkins gave a service call to a precinct which
had not created a ZERO TOTALS REPORT. He made a card to card copy
and the second card had the same malfunction. The tabulator worked
fine after he used a previously programmed spare
