Re: R6 straight party override

Steve, the touch screen firmware logic is designed this way, in another words, the straight party choice overrides any prior explicit candidate choices.  In order to implement a non-overriding straight party choice, configure the election with Pennsylvania Straight Party Voting in the AccuVote-TS Options in GEMS.

Present R6 operation under ballot station loaded by GEMS 1-17-12:
Votes are cast in partisan races.
Voter then casts a straight party vote.
All offices are now overridden by the straight party vote including

Proper operation:
Changing the straight party vote should not override a given office after an
exception as been made in a that office.
In other words, only offices that had no exception voting should be
overridden by a change of the straight party vote.
