Re: AVTS - Summary Page

The problem here is that the information is for the voter. The voter may have selected a language that is not the default one and therefore the information displayed is not in their selected language and they cannot read it. 
This being the case I am trying to see if I can use the same information displayed on the ballot but truncating and/or scaling it so that it fits.

I believe that if we put the requirement in place that the race heading on the summary page is created from the data entered into the label field of the race editor, it may offer a partial solution to the problem that Ken is presenting.  If you look on the printed short report, that is were the heading for that report is obtained.  If that suffices for the printed form, then why would it not suffice for the 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.
