With the Polling Vote Center expanded in the tree view, click on Pct 1 OS. Then hold down the shift and control keys and drag and drop the Pct 1 report precinct from the right side over to Pct 1 TS. This should allow you to duplicate the report precinct within the Polling vote center category.
Nel, I cannot get a report precinct to attach to more than one vote center within the Polling vote center group. It does work if I make a separate counter group called Polling TS vote centers. See attached db. This is an old db so the password is "global". I configured the two Polling Vote Centers (OS and TS) without the cumulative results only check box checked.
Am I doing something wrong?
Mark, you don't need a unique vote center category to configure the blended system, just define two vote centers for every polling location, all in the same vote center category (assuming both AccuVote-OS and AccuVote-TS units are used for polling).
With the new ADA requirements facing our OS customers, they will likely be knocking on our door to purchase TS units to compliment their existing OS systems with one TS unit in each precinct - coexisting with the OS units in a blended system. While there are some problems with programming such a system (namely needing to have another Vote Center category created for the TS units), these are hurdles that can be managed (I guess they can - does anyone have thoughts on this?). My bigger concern is handling the uploading of both TS and OS results via modem into the GEMS server.
What are the known issues relating to upload? I know that TS uses RAS while OS uses regular serial com ports, thus the need for separate modem banks. Can GEMS receive modem uploads from both OS and TS units at the same time? Has this been tested in any kind of a medium to large scale test? Does anyone have any experience with receiving both TS and OS modem uploads?
