Re: Race Summary Report

    The candidate id's in the Race Summary report are used for sorting purposes and do not need to be consecutive and only need to be unique within the race.  As I have told you in the past the DIMS export simply exports the candidates in the sort seq order but gives them consecutive numbers 1,2, 3,... as requested by DIMS.  The Race Summary report does not give the DIMS export numbers.

Subject: Race Summary Report

It is my understanding that the race summary report (in Alameda) is supposed to show candidates in order of base rotation and number 1,2,3,...within the race. 
The race summary report does that for the Presidents race 1, but the candidate ids in race 2 start that way, but the write-in jumps to ID 15.  These ids do not appear to be numbered within race.  Some have duplicates, see 2:15 and 3:15 or 8:36 and 9:36.  the only reason I care about this is to provide DIMS with the race / candidate IDs for their coding of the DIMS tabulation.  Is this a report bug or just not the right report?
