1) What do we do about the public ballot counter and the card counters (which are not uploaded but which appear on the AV reports)? a) Leave as is, b) reset them to zero, or c) try to adjust them for the cleared ballots (not possible if ballots are shared between precincts).
2) How serious would it be if someone accidentally cleared the wrong precinct? Should we warn that this should be done only on a backup copy? If the results have not been uploaded, do we make it more difficult to clear the counters? For clearing the memory card we require that the operator re-enter the password and re-confirm the clearing operation.
3) What kind of audit trail do we need? We currently have an audit log entry for clearing the counters but there is no way that we could record which subset of counters was cleared. Would printing something on the tape be sufficient?
4) When is this *required*? I'm trying to get out a V2 release
RSN (i.e. the next few weeks) so maybe we could try this out in that version.

If not uploaded then you get the following and a NO response exits the
If NO to the previous then you are prompted for each precinct (or poll)
where n is the precinct (or poll) ID.
If clearing individual precincts, the memory card label is printed once
as a header and then for each cleared precinct it prints:
