Re: Sealing AVTS units
I am not certain that the Election Code actually calls for the PC card to sealed on our unit or any othre type of memory storage device be sealed in general on TS units. Currently there is little election code relative to the hardware of TS. I am not aware that Sequoia or ESS have a method either.
Histroically we have done so with the memory card on the OS unit and Volusia has included that language in their "security procedures". I discussed with them the possibility of paper seal over the PC card(s). Simply put, you cant seal the PC card cover, because you have to unlock the cover to turn the unit on. Hardware designers should give this some consideration
