My fault. Like the HTML flag, number of precincts and number reporting are not available in SOVC, just in Summary. The two columns will be eliminated in 1.17.7. It would be a nice option feature though; consider it on the plate, just not for Nov.
Folks, this is a relatively serious bug since anyone with 1.17 GEMS will have to explain to election adiministrators why the field is zero on election night. Upgrade if you can.
