RE: Puerto Rico - Central Count

This was only for the fist day.  We did not start doing the process until 
about 10:00 a.m.  Then we stopped for lunch about 11:30 A.M. until 1:00 
p.m.  Then continued processing until 4:30 p.m.  We also have to stop after 
every set of units processed to do reporting, which means that if only 1 
operator is still processing a unit from that set, then all other machines 
are idle.  Remember that this is a learning experience for them.  The way 
that they process the ballots is slow, we probably are only using the 
Accu-Vote units about half of this time, the rest is involved with the 
processing of the boxes, ballots, and paper work.  I have not talked with 
Juan yet today, to see how they did, but they should have been able to at 
least double or triple that 14,000 ballots today.  I am going to give Juan 
a call right now, and he will also see this e-mail and hopefully respond. 
 As for the typical speed for processing central count via hand input, I do 
not have the answer, but does anyone???

For future sales reference can you expand on the time factor:  11 AVOS 
divided by 14,000 ballots is roughly 1270 ballots for each unit in a 
Count/GEMS environment.  How long did you process and is the typical speed
related to the number of units in this configuration?  Thanks

Hi All,

We are doing Central Count here in Puerto Rico with 14" ballots printed on
both sides, Gems Version 1-15-6, Roms Version CC2.00g, and 11 Accu-Vote
units, but no Accu-Feeder units.  So far all is well, we counted about
14,000 ballots today.
