Subject: District Rotation - Not
sequential with Cards or Ballots
I am not sure if this is
a bug, or just the way that GEMS handles the District Rotation, or I have not
set up the District Rotation correctly.
Attached is the database
for 2 Precincts, 1 Race, and 3 Candidates for Johnson County, KS. It is
not really a District Rotation, however, this is how it is set up, due to the
State Law, that requires that all candidates be rotated within each
precinct. Since this election only has 2 precincts and 3
candidates, we set up a Rotation District with 3 Sub-Districts with the
rotation set accordingly for each Sub-District, and 3 Base Precincts for each
of the 2 Report Precincts. Then within the Race, we defined the rotation
as District and selected the Rotation District accordingly.
GEMS does create the
rotations, however, Ballot 1 is rotation 2, Ballot 2 is rotation 1, and Ballot
3 is rotation 0. Where I would expect Ballot 1 to be rotation 0, Ballot
2 to be rotation 1, and Ballot 3 to be rotation 2.
Is this a bug, or the way
that GEMS does it???
