RE: New Zero Report for Excessively Long Primary Ballots

Someone who uses the AVOS more than me can probably fill in the specifics, but yes, you can choose a “detail” report to get the precinct breakdown, or a summary report to get the summary.


There is also a very longstanding RCR (like 5 years old) to allow jurisdictions to choose a different ABasic file for early voting vote centers, vs. polling vote centers.  This would allow you to have your cake and eat it too, without even being bothered by the prompt.


Of course, neither is of any use to Johnson, but it does answer your question.


[Please try to maintain the subject line when doing follow-ups.  It is difficult to track the thread otherwise.  Moving to support since this is just a generic question about ABasic, and not a request for a change.]

RCR guys,


can you answer the following questions for me and give me some idea of what this RCR request may change and if the ABO file allows a "toggle" or way to change from one style zero report to another???  Thanks.

This item is not at the top of my priority list - we have a method in place to handle this election.  This problem will only arise at the early voting location TS's during an August even-numbered election.  I don't want a solution for this unique situation to create more work or problems for the other elections.  I probably need to understand what the ABO file is and how changing it will impact the Election Day touchscreens that must print all races and candidates for a zero proof and an end of day tally report.

Connie, here is what the support group came up with.  Lesley



Request an RCR to change ABO file ( this controls the format and style of all AVTS and AVOS printer Reports) to print a new Zero Report that simply states that all races for all candidates for all parties are Zero as an affidavit.  And that the judge's signature verifies that the on screen counter is indeed Zero.


Situation:  For their Aug6 Primary Election, JoCoKs will have 3 advance voting locations with a total of 120 AVTS units deployed for early voting in person.  In a test run it was discovered that to print the zero report from the advance voting PCMCIA election card before the polls open on the first day of voting will require at the minimum 40 minutes for each report and almost a roll of paper.  (Primary election has three parties, two of which have the precinct committee people.)  Also, on election day, the final report from each AVTS advanced voting unit is typically printed centrally, and we are looking at the same requirements.
