What number of Accu-Votes will a second serial card added to a Personal Computer (to provide 4 upload lines with modems), support without causing GEMS problems?

  GEMS can use whatever serial ports are set up in WinNT and I believe that we have used about 20 ports on some systems.


Maybe, but I would suggest sticking with the Digi Xem even in small accounts.  The problem is that nonstandard hardware is impossible to support.  An 8em is one seventh the cost of a single AccuVote.  If an account can't afford an 8em, they can't afford GEMS either.
