My understanding is that Karen Rae is the "project manager - in training" and that I will be helping her learn about the AVTS unit and she will have ability to call in Tari for ballot layout or Jeff for on-site tech support, or Germaine to do user documentation, etc..  Jeff D., can you confirm?  Is there some announcement on this?

I am not sure who is the project manager for Alameda, but I do know that Sofia is the project manager for LA.  Sofia please give your input.  I am in agreement with Ian, we should keep all Ballot Station Sofware the same across all the units.  When I was out in Oakland, the units that I did work on had version, I am assuming that all are that way, I am not sure what LA has.  Do we want to keep those units with this version, as well as, send out the new units with this version; or do we want to send out the new units with the latest version and then upgrade the units in the field???

The equipment hadn't shipped yet.  The new Blue and White units are still in production.  No Ballot Station software has been loaded onto the Master Hard Drive.  (It changes too fast to keep up with it).  If you want loaded, please have the project manager(s) confirm this via email.


My suggestion is that you try to maintain the same version of Ballot Station Software across all the units.

Has this equipment been shipped yet???  The reason I ask, I was wondering if we should put on the same AVTS version that we currently have in Oakland & LA, which is  Since we will be using a combination of the new units along with the units that they already have, and also using units from Oakland as backup for LA.  Suggestions???

I just faxed the work order for the Oakland election for Alameda.


50 AVTS units (I guess the blue and white - no modems necessary)

30 Spyrus cards (I will need 10 shipped ASAP for the PIEDMONT election)

250 Smart cards (that work with the Spyrus - I'll need 50 of the Smartcards by Feb.12 for Piedmont)

       these will need the Alameda Logo - Perhaps you can add some Identifier on the logo to distinguish

        these cards from the other 250 cards.


I attached a spread sheet to show the amount we are billing for the Oakland election $196,700 with 50% to be billed on delivery and 50% billed on certification of the April 17 election.  By then we'll know about the next 900 units for the UDEL in November.  Please keep me informed about smart cards and spyrus issues as Jeff Hintz will be heading to Alameda on Jan. 23 for Logic and Accuracy testing and will, I'm sure, be asked about how they are creating cards in the precincts.
