RE: Permanent counter for the Accu-Vote OS

If we do require this for the future, the battery powered chip is acceptable.  The logic being that  when the mechanical counters have to be replaced, they start at 000000, and the replaced count is recorded.
Understand that if a battery backed up chip loses its power, it will also lose its counter.  The replaced count would have to be recorded prior to the chip losing its battery power.
