RE: Wyle Certification Material

Guy, this whole section above and below is confusing to me.  Are these some new functions not presently implemented yet? 


They are implemented.  Guy's explaination is confusing to me too.

1.95e introduces the "Auto Absentee" feature, which allows you count absentee ballots in the polls without the need for header cards, so long as the absentee voters have different cards than the polling voters.  The AV uses the different card numbers to figure out whether the ballot is absentee automatically.  Hence the name.

1.95e also introduces two new header cards, called "Polling" and "No Override".   They are used in Minnesota in conjunction with the old "Absentee" header card to switch between polling and absentee counters while voting during the day.  Ignore the "Polling" card;  it isn't good for anything.  The "No Override" card returns you to normal counting after you have finished feeding the absentee voter's cards during the day.

The question 9 answer is also confusing.  It is simply a bug fix:  reject absentee header cards if there is no absentee count group.

Ignore references to V2 in Guy's answers (there are many), and for gods sake don't let the term V2 leak to Wyle.  Guy, please stop doing that.



Title: Accu-Vote Release 1.95e
Accu-Vote 2000 - Release 1.95e
Revised April 26, 2000


To support counting absentee ballots at the polls while the polls are open.


The 1.95e release of the Accu-Vote firmware is based on the 1.95d release. The precinct count upload protocol remains compatible with all 1.9x VTS versions. The precinct count download protocol and the memory cards remain compatible with release 1.95d.  New features require a recent release of GEMS.
