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.
