Okay.  We could upload to GEMS these times, and create a report that shows
vote centers with openening and closing times.  I still ask though, what
does an administrator do with this report?  Poll 13543 opened at 7:27:AM and
poll 13544 opened at 7:32AM.  Does 13543 win a prize?

You misunderstand.  The ballot station will still have a log, just like the
AccuVote.  In the event of an error, that unit's logs can be examined
post-mortem to aid debugging.  The only issue is whether the logs of all
machines should be uploaded election night.
