RE: Using cumulative report precincts (was RE: Multiple Cumulative Counter Groups....)
will work. However, I cannot get a seperate total for Absentee or Early on
the Election Summary Report, only on the SOVC Report.
Jeff, I was
playing around with multiple cumulative reporting precincts, and I think I
know the root source of the confusion here. When you have cumulative
report precincts, you usually(1) only need to create one new counter
group named "cumulative". Don't create Absentee and Early counter
groups like you would when you are breaking out by precinct. The whole
point of cumulative report precincts is that you are breaking out Absentee and
Early voting as precincts, not as counter groups. For the
Georgia database that you were setting up, if you just had one cumulative
counter group, then you wouldn't see the duplicate report precincts in the
vote centers by default (and then have to delete them).
GEMS manual is unclear on this, its worth a section. Nel, please review
this with Jeff.
