If they undervote
race A do they get to vote on race B?
If not, then you can set this up with a
crazy use of party preference.Make
the NO candidate in race A a party called NO.Then set up race B as a partisan race with
votergroup NO. Now they have to vote NO in race A to get
to vote on race B.
If they get to vote on race B if they undervote A, then I can’t think of a creative
solution off the cuff.

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

I received the following question today from Alachua County, FL. They
are using GEMS 1.17.17.
I have a very odd question:
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.
