Florida - Completed Phase 1 of the test plan for GEMS 1-17, Accu Touch, AccuVote and Accu Feed. I will try to schedule phase 2 for early September, but the dates are actually up to the Florida Division of Elections. We will have to submit the VIBS portion as an additional item to our certification plan. Until it is ready and tested we can not finalize the application. Thanks to Jeff Hintz for his work on this portion of the test.
Arizona - Presented GEMS 1-17 and R6 touch screen. Hearing went well and now we have to complete Wyle certification on the R6 and obtain NASED number to be sent to Arizona SOS.
