In GEMS 1.7.4, an election is defined with two report precincts. The region 'Remote' is defined in the Region Editor and one of the vote centers (corresponding to the two report precincts) defined with region Remote. The Election Status is set to 'Set for Election'. 'Remote' is deleted in the Region Editor. The Vote Center Editor now shows a blank in the Region field for the vote center set to region 'Remote' and the vote center no longer appears in the download console.
