understand correctly, then, the recall will not work as any response to the
recall race enables counting of the recalled race.
anyone have a method to handle the request?

Variation on the Recall Race concept
I received the following
question today from Alachua County, FL. They are using GEMS 1.17.17.
I have a very
Can GEMS be used
to exclude a race under some conditions?
To wit, our city
wishes to place two issues for vote on the same ballot this fall, the second of
which is moot if item 1 is approved, thus they wish to make the Accuvote ignore
the vote in race B if race A is marked "Yes".... It sounds like a
legal nightmare to me, but I've just been asked to check if it can be done, not
give my legal view. Thanks;
It sounds like creative use of the
Recall Race feature could maybe accomplish this. As I understand a Recall Race
to work, if the recall is marked yes, then the recalled race is counted. The
scenario above works just the opposite.
I did see that it was
possible to add more choices other than the default YES on the Recall Race. If
a NO was added as a possible choice on a recall race, would the system count
it? How does the ability to count the recalled
race get triggered or disabled in this instance?
Either Yes or No
selection in the Recall race effects the counting of selections in the Recalled
race to which it is linked.
I am working towards
structuring the first question Will mentions above as a recall race and the
second question as the recalled race. Possibly the wording of Q1 would have to
be changed so that voting YES triggers the counting of Q2.
Thanks for any help.
