RE: GEMS 1.17.17 Base Precincts with Cards Report

Hi Whitman,


Thanks for verifying the problem and the method of changing the password, as well as info on how to check reports version – I do have 1.17.17. It seems that your solution is to go with a later version of the GEMS reports, which will probably work in many states. Am I correct in assuming that in a state such as Florida or Georgia where the GEMS version certified is only 1.17.17, reports version 1.17.22 is not a viable option? This can cause some big headaches in large jurisdictions where there are many splits, and the jurisdiction is relying on the Base Precincts with Cards report to distribute ballots.


If reports 1.17.22 is not an option, does anyone have a workaround, perhaps using some type of export that can then be manipulated into a usable report? I guess the main workaround is to print the Cards with Base Precincts report and use it. Has anyone dealt with this in the field?

Hi Mark,

Database is attached. Note the password is Diebold – capital D, not my doing. BTW, can I change the admin password for one database only by going into the Setup Users menu in that particular database?

Yes, you can change the password from the Setup Users menu.  Just close and re-open GEMS with the new password.



The failure I see (I guess it is a failure) is that for any Report Precinct with more than one Base Precinct; if the base precincts share a ballot style, the style is only listed for the first Base Precinct. I understand the report should show every ballot style for every base precinct. The way it works now, it appears that the second BP does not have a particular style.

Please download GEMS-Reports-1-17-22.zip for the fix.  The password is "bccrbinmpfndt".



Also, I do not know whether I got the report file bundle with 1.17.17. How can I check this?


FYI, the first line in the "\Program Files\GEMS\Reports.ini" file always contains the version number of the Reports package.  If the report package is bundled with the GEMSIS package, the reports version is the same as the GEMS version.  If not, it has probably overwritten by an other version for report package downloaded from our FTP site.
