Does the AVTS print a totals report on start-up if there are ballots counted?  I suspect that like the AVOS it doesn’t which would indicate that the poll workers failed to notice that no zero totals report was printed.


I doubt that we want a software change to detect this condition (i.e. first start-up each day or similar) so we need to depend on poll worker procedures to detect this.

The thing I don’t get about the article is what happened to the zero totals tape.  That is the first thing you do in the morning, and every poll worker has to sign it.  It’s not like you can miss 37 test ballots. 


Was this a matter of the operating procedure being to not print the tape b/c it is too long?  If this is the case, we really have to get this situation improved by implementing a proper summary report on the AVTS.  This has been done for the 4.4 release, if it is any consolation.  I don’t like blaming pollworkers in cases like this, as the article seems to do.  The software needs to suck less.
