In Marin, they are using the same memory card to test modems. They simply get the "PRECINCT ALREADY UPLOADED" message when they send the results.
However, on each card, after x number of uploads (say 20 or so) they bring the card upstairs and it they report the following (I've verified it)
PLEASE REINSERT MEMORY CARD (so we do)
TEXT CHECK ERROR OK TO CONINTUE? (they were saying yes)
PLEASE REINSERT MEMORY CARD (etc. etc.)
TEXT CHECK ERROR OK TO CONTINUE? (if you say yes it goes to...)
TEST BALLOTS and they continue with their resending results and testing
Is the memory card damaged at this point?? If I proceed from TEST BALLOTS to PREPARE FOR ELECTION and answer yes, turn the machine off and back on I go back to PLEASE REINSERT MEMORY CARD.
So the card seems blown and will not work in the polling place. We've been saying that cards are getting blown with increased frequency. This is the 7th card of 114 cards that have blown. If they can get a card to blow simply by reinserting it in a series of AccuVotes, then it would seem possible that we can also replicate this.
