Re: AVTS software upgrade - From 3.12 to 4.0.4

Their next scheduled election will take place November 10, 2003.  The election summary was of particular interest to the City Clerk of Barrie, John Craig, the man responsible for its purchase.  In the last election, there were a number of voters who kept touching the NEXT without voting.  It is his opinion that showing a summary of the candidates voted for would eliminate the blank vote.
Barrie is the only municipality in Canada using a touch screen system and as such, John Craig is asked to speak at many election functions as well as media interviews.

When is their next election?  What benefits does 4.0 provide them that they do not currently have.  What features does 4.0 give them that they need for their next election?

The City of Barrie, Ontario has seen our latest AVTS 4.0 software, and was wondering if they would be able to upgrade their Blue & White AVTS units to that version.


They are running Windows 98 on their current AVTS units.  So that is not a problem.


However, they are using Poll Book version 3.12, which is on their own Computer Systems with a external card reader connected, and creating voter cards this way.  Is Poll Book version 3.12 compatible with Ballot Station 4.0.4.  I think that this would be the only concern in doing an upgrade for them.
