Re: Poll Book Questions



ok, I asked the wrong question.  Let me try again.
 
How do you create the election specific files that need to go onto the PCC for a given vote center so that you can encode cards for those ballot styles?

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

 

n.b.  Itís 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 donít.  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 donít follow.
