is kind of where I was thinking, but I got tangled up. Not real experienced with
party preference. I think the option of undervoting Race A and then voting race
B is allowed, so maybe it is not doable.

wording to make the responses fit the capabilities of the

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
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
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
