I believe the description of the existing functionality sounds like a CA. logic, which is a requirement. That is a YES or NO vote can activiate the recall, and if the YES votes are over 50%, then everyone's vote (whether they voted YES OR NO above) is counted for the recall.
I do not believe Jeff's request would meet the CA. requirements.
Gems 1.18.15 Ballot Station 4.3.14 This RCR affects both GEMS and Ballot Station. Current behavior: Selecting Recall race as the race type creates 1 default candidate "YES" of type "Candidate". The race editor allows for the creation of more candidates of any other type that is available in drop down list. When another candidate is created, label "NO" of type "Candidate" the resulting behavior is that when either of the candidates, "YES" or "NO" is voted then the Recalled race tied to this Recall race is activated. Desired behavior: Selecting Recall race as the race type creates 1 default candidate "YES" of type "RecalledKeyCandidate", this type is new and would have the attributes of a standard "Candidate" type as well having the attribute of being able to activate the Recalled race. In other words when a candidate is voted of type "RecalledKeyCandidate" then the Recalled race is activated. The race editor still allows for the creation of more candidates of any other type that is available in drop down list, but only candidate type "RecalledKeyCandidate" can activate the Recall race. Motivation: The Governor of Georgia has a Preference election coming up in March 2004 that requires this feature.
