Re: Polling (anti-absentee) header cards

Just tell me what the ID codes look like on the bottom of the ballot (both sides) and I'll create the script files.  When would you have that info?

Minnisota accounts currently count their absentees in the polls using absentee header cards after their polls close.  This delays the uploading of results, because of the time needed to physically feed the ballots.  They would rather feed the ballots during a slow period during the day.  Right now there is no (easy) way to get back into precinct count mode once the absentee header card is fed.
An obvious solution is a "Polling" header card that puts the AV back into this mode.  Its easy to implement, and will be in the next 1.95 ROM release, in time for their primary.  Ian, we'll get you the new script for creating the header cards.
