RE: SOVC by District

Its more straightforward than that.  Here is Tab's response (it bounced Friday):


This is already supported in the SOVC. Just select the districts in the Group By Districts box (check the 'I' (include) but not the 'D' Detail boxes) and unselect the Jurisdiction wide. The only think I noticed in the Marin database is the towns are all root level districts and not sub-districts of a category Town therefore we cannot produce totals by these districts.


The GEMS output is nearly identical to the report Steve faxed from Marin.  This feature was added when we get the Tulare, CA account if I recall correctly.

if you edit the certification with the @RACES macro and then select the district on the left of the SOVC  the total is listed at the end of the SOVC  - just the total - not by precinct -  would this suffice for what you are requesting?

Re: SOVC totals by District

In addition to the regular request to get a horizontal line of absentee, polling place, and totals on the SOVC the following is not an OPTIONAL report for California Counties.  I've faxed an example of what I'm talking about to TAB and KEN.

I am faxing this copy of the SOVC automated report that came from Marin’s prior vote counting system from DFM. DIMS has one like this. It gives the candidate and questions across the top and totals only by:


State Senate



Incorporated (Cities)


THIS IS NOT AN OPTIONAL REPORT. It is required by the Secretary of State’s office from all California Counties, including Global customers. Presently, our customers are printing (in this case) 21 summary reports and then filling in with a typewriter the totals for each candidate and race on a seperate spreadsheet to meet the secretary of state requirements.  Obviously, this is not acceptable.

Our SOVC must have an option that provides for these totals by district in a single report. This supplemental SOVC totals report does not have to be by precinct, just by the above district with totals only - but IT IS A REQUIRMENT. This was needed for last November and for this primary in March. It's got to be implement for the November Presidential Election as a single report for California Counties (see fax to tab and ken for sample).
