What do we do about the public ballot counter and the card counters
(which are not uploaded but which appear on the AV reports)?
a) Leave as is, b) reset them to zero, or c) try to adjust them for
the cleared ballots (not possible if ballots are shared between
after you clear a precinct
(assumming you are still in election mode) and signal to recount the
precinct a new zero tape would print ( for that precinct )
locking any activity out to the other precincts already counted-
then you would count the precinct again - feed ender card and get
results - then proceed with regular upload - does that sound
A new zero
tape for the clear precinct(s) and locking out activity for the other
precincts would be *very* difficult and would require changes to the memory
card format. This is really sounding like we should be downloading a
new memory card for this recount which was my original suggestion.
we warn that this should be done only on a backup copy? can this be uploaded
Memory card duplicates
should upload the same as the original.
When is this *required*? ideally I
would love to have some testing time before the november elections -
End of June would allow all of July to test and give us leeway
before november art goes to printers
So I'll see what I can work in
the rest unless you're keen on the details.]
For the prompt sequence, how about:
CLEAR COUNTERS & RESUME COUNTING?
put in something that tells us - Card
uploaded ok to clear
Are you suggesting
that this be part of the standard post-election options rather than a
supervisor function? In the supervisor functions we only display those
options that are reasonable for the current memory card status. Thus
we could display the clear counter option only if the memory card had been
uploaded. Would this be reasonable?
