RE: vgroup 1 and counter groups

It hasn't changed.  El Paso, TX is set up with Republican and Democrat reporting sets for this purpose.  This is either (1) wrong or (2) redundant.  I am still working out for myself which it is, hence the question.

    This was originally set up to handle the Texas requirement to allow, during primary elections, for the parties to be counted at different polling locations. Has this changed?

The counter group setup dialog allows you to choose a vgroup1 (party) and vgroup2 (abs/poll).  Question:  has anyone ever set up a database where a counter group's vgroup1 is anything other than nonpartisan?  I suspect the answer is "no", but I would like to confirm.  I know people have set up a vgroup2 for the case where absentee ballots differ from polls, but I am talking about vgroup1 here.
This is one of those "speak now or forever hold your peace" situations, so please let me know...
