RE: GEMS recount

Whit, we need a new report:  race rotation with cards (self explainatory).
Nel, change the doc to use this new report.  It worth noting somewhere in this doc the reason why they have to go through all the trouble to find out what cards need recounting.  It used to be that the AccuVote did not like cards with no races on it (as is the case when the recount race is not on a card of a vote center).  Download would give an out of sync message I believe.  This meant that any cards without the recount race would need to be sifted out of the stack of cards for a vote center.  I believe this has been fixed somewhere in the 1.94 series.  Guy, please confirm this, and let us know what rev.  Certainly, central count will accept these cards. 
So, for newer ROMS or central count, the recount proceedure is to print a races with vote centers to determine which vcenters to recount, then feed through the whole deck of cards that came back from those polling places.  In short, sifting through a deck of cards looking for the ones to recount is error prone, and errors are the last thing you want in a recount situation.
