Steve: It's not so much polling places we're concerned
about as Early Voting sites.
I'm didn't know there would be a
hardware configuration difference between the two. I thought that polling
places and early voting sites shared the same database diskettes.
Are you saying that polling places
with multiple languages (Chinese graphics included) could fit their database
onto a 1.44MB floppy?
Would the polling place
database never exceed the size of a 1.44MB floppy?
Ian: You just don't know when
you'll need a floppy or and Imation disk. It sounds like this should
be a requirement on laptop pollbooks. It's an extra on existing
PollBooks, but will be standard on future PollBooks
Ken: That would be a waste for non-VIBS
polling places. This was explained at length at least once
