I meant to include a section
in the "VCProgrammers User Guide" on how to export the data from
Do not use the "Export Card
Data", rather use the "Export Voter Card Info". For LA this is creates
a 549KB file and for Alameda it creates a 236KB file.
You will need to use
GEMS-1-17-4 to get the "Export Voter Card Info" menu item. It is
Election->Export->Export Voter Card Info.

Subject: VCProgrammer - GEMS Extract
File to Start Program
A good job was done on the VCProgrammer User Guide for
installation process. It is good to have something to look at.
One main question arises.
The doc indicates that VC Programmer is looking for a
file called VoterData.txt. GEMS has an Export Card Data
function. Is that the program that makes the file we need? If
so, it creates a 9MB file. I haven't tried it yet, because it
creates a 9Mb file and obviously the PC has no Imation drive on it.
I'll wait for Tab to comment. Maybe I have the wrong Export?
So bottom line is "How does the VOTERDATA.TXT file get
created in GEMS?"
