Re: AVTS - Cast Vote Button on Ballot Page

I do not think this is a good idea for two reasons.
1)    We are going to end up with far too many options for the AVTS unit for any user to be able to deal with.
2)    Having a single usr action that results in a non-reversible process from occurring is not a good idea.  I expect we will see this used once and then too many voters will complain that the 'accidentally' pressed the Vote button and that will be the end of this option.

Subject: AVTS - Cast Vote Button on Ballot Page

RCR:                      Put the Cast Vote Button on the Last Page of the Ballot

Requested:            May 1, 2000

Required:              Canadian Trial Election

Jurisdiction:        Canada


Our new agent in Canada, “Dynabec”, is requesting that the Cast Vote Button be put on the Last Page of the Ballot, where the Next Button appears.  I believe that this is the old I-Mark format.  They would like to see the AVTS software changed this way, because they are afraid that the Voter will just walk away from the machine after they vote, if  there is no Cast Vote Button.
