For what it's
worth, I drilled into Georgia customers last year never to use default vote
centers. What you are describing occurs with the default vote centers, but
not with non-default vote centers.
Recuperate using the following steps:
- delete both
Absentee and Early Voting counter groups
- re-add the counter
groups, again with unique vote center categories
- re-define the two
cumulative report precincts
- create a unique
vote center in each of the Absentee and Early Voting vote center
- link the
cumulative report precincts to the corresponding vote centers

I did not
put both the Absentee & Early report precincts together. GEMS did
this automatically for me, and I cannot delete the Early from Absentee, or
visa-versa. If I could, I think that all would be
You have the
Absentee and Early report precinct both in the Absentee
vote center. Ditto Early vote center. That is, um, a weird thing
to do. Delete Early report precinct out of Absentee vote center, and
visa-versa, and you should be fine.
That said, there
does seem to be a double accounting here for this oddball case. There
is definitely only one early voting precinct reporting.
the database. No matter if I create seperate Vote Center Categories,
or have both counter groups under the same Vote Center Category, I still
come up with the same result on the report.
Hold on, I
think I misread this. Jeff, can you email me the database
so we can play.
actually correct, though it can be confusing. The Absentee and
Early counter groups are in the same precinct in this
example. So, we don't sum them, they only count
once. The total number of precinct is 12, not 14.
You will get the same answer whether the counter group totals box
is check or not.
I have tried a
couple of different ways to set up 2 Cumulative Counter
Groups. But no matter how I do it, when I print out a Election
Summary Report with the Counter Group Totals Only check box
unchecked, I get the Number of Precincts to be 2 for each Cumulative
Counter Group, whereI believe it should be 1. The Total is
correct, but makes it very confusing, if you are adding from left to
right. Please see below.
Maybe I am not
doing something correct????
