Re: AVTS - Summary Page

the term printing was incorrect. Sorry. I meant display on-screen.  Ken has it correct that Frank has asked to touch a piece of summary and go back to the race if the voter wants it changed.  This is presently a Sequoia function now.
Regarding the Race Titles for the race summary, it does sound like we are asking for a LABELSUM field in the race editor that would be used on the last page summary screen vs. the complete Header file which includes Vote for information.

There was an RCR submitted by Knecht "AVTS - Voter Summary Page" regarding printing of a summary page for the voter.  Discussion of that went offline briefly and the request is currently tabled pending further developments.  Hopefully it will die:  it is a terrible idea, deserving of letters to the editor.

As for a summary screen, I don't think there has been a formal RCR as of yet.  I don't really understand the request myself:  voters are welcome to review their ballot, so I don't see the functionality.  If you want to submit it, please include whether this is required by law, and some motivation for the request.  On the technical side, there is the question of where to get the race titles to put on the summary screen, and what to do when all races do not fit on one screen.  We'll need suggestions in the RCR for those issues.
