Manual Entry situation

Looking for comments as to how else to handle this situation.  Les

County printed own early voting absentee optical scan ballots.  1700 ballots would not read and had to be counted by hand for 82 precincts.  County activists gathered volunteer staff immediately and hand tallying occurred in a matter of hours.  To produce reports, all 1700 ballots had to be entered into GEMS for 82 precincts through the manual entry module.  This process took 11 hours and was not completed until Wednesday.




As an election night interim step, are there other alternatives for producing election night reports that do not include manually entering full data?  Apparently the MicroVote software had an edit function that allowed election official to manually edit the Election Summary.  Was this similar to printing the GEMS Election Summary report to file and editing?  Other alternatives?
