Do you mean blank ballot
or blank race? How are the other races voted? If the ballot
really is blank, then is should be rejected as blank. I'll try to
Okay, it looks like you mean blank
race. Guy, please take a look at this. Preference and
straight party races are not rejected as blank even if reject blank races is
- A ballot is rejected with the preference race and
first partisan candidacy as blank and multi-party votes in all three
partisan candidacies where the preference race has been left blank and
candidates selected in all three partisan races. Since all three
races should be discarded as blank (due to multi-party overvote, there
should either be a blank race return message for all three candidacies or
none at all (since the three partisan candidacies are already being
returned due to multi-party votes).
Again I can barely
parse this. I think this is the same case as your first
point. Should any votes be counted for the ballot in question or
not? If not, it should be rejected as blank. If I didn't
understand you (this would not suprise me), try explaining it
again without the run on sentences.
I tried this and get a reject on the blank
preference, just like the first bug. Are you trying to convey something
- The Republican party is selected in the
preference race, one candidate in the Democrat candidacy and no candidates
in either the Republican or Unaffiliated candidacies - the Democrat
candidate marked on the ballot is tallied even though the Democrat
candidacy should be tallied as blank voted.
I will try to reproduce
this. Do you have a test case?
I could not reproduce this. Supply a test case
along with exactly what candidates are voted on the ballot.
- The Democrat party is selected in the preference
race, two candidates in each of the vote for one Democrat and Republican
candidacies and a candidate and write-in in the Unaffiliated
candidacy. The Democrat candidacy should be logged with an overvote
and the Republican and Unaffiliated candidacies with blank votes, yet all
three partisan candidacies are returned as blank
I cannot parse this, but
I'll try setting up a partisan race voted democrat and a partisan democratic
race overvoted and see what happens. Are you saying the democratic race
will be rejected as blank instead of overvoted?
I have to ask. Is a
"candidacy" a race or a candidate?
This one is
wierd. I set up two partisan races controlled by a preference race.
Overvoted both partisan races and voted for one candidate in the preference
race. The ballot is accepted, but I think it should be rejected with an
overvote in race 20. Guy, this looks like another AV bug, but that is
enough AV preference bugs to make me think I am missing something.
Attached is the database.
