RE: Open Primary Election on AVTS
This doesn't make
sense. PSINet does not certify the AVTS. I'd add that we don't have
any AVTS open primary customers, and aren't likely to have one any time
soon. I suggest that PSINet concern itself with GEMS. If they want
to attach a proviso saying that open primaries are not NASED certified when used
in conjunction with the AVTS, that's fine. It works with AVOS.
If they want GEMS to put up an error if you try to download an open primary to
an R4 AVTS, that can be arranged.
And yes, the R6
supports open primaries.
I stress however
that what the R6 can and cannot do is beside the point. Say we add
support for cross endorsement in GEMS for the AVOS only before cross
endorsement is implemented on the AVTS. This isn't a hypothetical:
it will probably happen that way. Just because we implement a feature for
one of our voting machines doesn't mean it has to be implemented in all of
them for GEMS to be certified. I challenge them to point out where in the
FEC rules it says that all voting machines have to implement all voting
rules. If they think this is a requirement, I'd like to have a short
discussion with them about our competition's products.
Within our current GEMS
1.17.11 and AVTS 184.108.40.206, we do not support an Open Primary Election on the
AVTS systems. I am currently here in Huntsville, AL and doing testing
with PSINet, where we have encountered this problem. In order to
certify, we need to show the ability to do an Open Primary Election on the
AVTS system. Is this going to be supported in the new R-6
