RE: Poll Book Questions

[taking this to the support list, since we are pretty close to a public release of PCC]


n.b.  It’s called a Precinct Control Center, not a Poll Book.

What is the procedure for creating the PCMCIA Vote Center election cards from GEMS for the PollBook PCC device? 


You don’t.  You create PCMCIA memory cards with ballot station.  We are also in the process of developing a mass download device to create multiple PCMCIA cards simultaneously.  It was never really intended to be a feature of the PCC to create memory cards.  A download device needs to have a high speed connection (read network) to GEMS, and the Jornada does not have built in network capability.  You can use a PCMCIA network card of course, but then there is no place to put the memory card.


How does this differ from creating R6 encoder cards for each vote center? 


This question I don’t follow.
