RE: Precinct IDs for Colorado

Do our Colorado accounts use an alphanumeric name for their precincts in addition to the ID, or just the numeric ID?  Put another way, what do they want to see down the left hand side of the SOVC report? 
If its just the number, then this already doable with our existing system.  Just type the 10 digit ID into the precinct label field.  If they also name their precincts, say for example "South Park Elementary" for precinct 1230000005, then this will require pretty major changes to all systems.
