Re: Ability to have the AccuVote sort Over votes & Challenged

The ability to sort ballots on the same options as rejecting them has been done,  This will be in GEMS-1-19-1.
Have also created a 195pr abasic report that reports the results in the format that has been requested.

Subject: Ability to have the AccuVote sort Over votes & Challenged

Jurisdiction:          San Juan, Puerto 
Date Requested:    April 2,  2002
Date Required:       May 12002, Actual Election date is June 30th, but need to test and have ready by May 20th.
Requested on behalf of Puerto Rico.  In addition to having the AccuVote sort out Blanks and Write-In's, they would like to have the AccuVote sort out Over Votes, and Challenged Voters.  They do not want to have the AccuVote rejecting any ballots, because they do not want to jeopardize the secrecy of the ballot and voter.  All Blanks, Over Votes, Challenged, and Write-In's need to be sorted, and then the Election Commission will look at all these ballots and manually adjust the vote totals. 
 Ability to Sort out;
1. Blank= En Blanco
2. Over votes = No Adjudicado
3. Challenged * = No Adjudicado
4.  Write In = Otros
*Note: The function of Challenged was incorporated for PR on firmware 194X in the past where if the oval for challenged is marked in the back of the ballot what ever was marked in the front race was not read and the ballot was sorted out.
