RE: Use of Spyrus for Early voting with one ballot and 12 precincts

This is an edge-case of Mark Early’s question from last month.  Long story short, just program the first one of 12 onto the Spyrus, and give everyone that card.  You will get the “right results”.  Try it out.


For my curiosity:  Why on earth would you run both paper and plastic for early voting?

GEMS-1-18-11       BS-4-3-9


I have a special election in Windsor, Ontario September 9 with 12 polls, (precincts) and one race.  City will use both AVOS and AVTS for the Advance Poll (Early Voting).  I have set GEMS to ballot sequence and cumulative results only to produce a single ballot.  I would like to use the Spyrus. 


The problem is the Ballot Station “Create Voter Cards” screen lists all 12 polls as choices instead of one just one, the advance poll.  The requirement is cumulative results only. 


The situation requires one choice, “Advance Poll Ballot” to be programmed into the Spyrus. 


I have many of our existing customers planning to use the AVTS for their Advance Poll and will be watching the Windsor election with interest.


Thank you,
