Didn't Tyler just
confirm this in his bug report yesterday?
Sorry but I was wrong in saying that the
Accu-Vote would reject an overvote before checking write-in overrides.
Upon checking the code, all write-in override options are applied before the
overvote condition is checked as per requirements.
This discussion was started by Nel's bug report:
- A candidate and write-in selected in a vote
for one race are returned as overvoted, even though the override
write-in rule should effect the selection of the write-in
which I believe was in
error. Does anyone have confirmation of this behavior?
- Candidacies marked with a
candidate as well as a write-in are being tallied as overvoted even though
they should be tallied as write-in using the override write-in
