Save Results for SEMS
VxAdmin saves SEMS-ready results files that include the results tabulated by VotingWorks equipment and, optionally, results exported from GEMS.
To save SEMS results, go to the Reports tab and select
Save SEMS Results.
If you haven't inserted a USB drive, you will be prompted to do so. VxAdmin will create a clear filename that includes the date and ask you to confirm that you want to
Save.The file will be saved to the USB drive. Eject the USB drive by selecting
Eject USB, when the screen indicates it's safe to do so, select
Closeremove the USB drive.
Connect the USB drive with the saved results to a computer connected to SEMS. Once connected, you will need to copy the results file to your local computer drive as SEMS does not recognize USB drives. You can launch SEMS after you have copied the appropriate results file to your local computer.
In SEMS, navigate to the Election Management view for the corresponding election and select
Election Resultsin the left navigation. From the results view, select
Import Resultsand then browse to the copied results file on your computer from the subsequent import dialog. Close the import dialog once finished importing.
Your election results should now be presented to you in SEMS. If results are not immediately presented, select the
Refresh Wizard Statusin the bottom left of the screen. You should see results after refreshing.
First, you will need to save your in-precinct TSX results files from GEMS to a USB drive. This does not need to be the same USB drive as the one you use for VotingWorks, but it can be.
Next, you will load the results file you got from the GEMS server into the VotingWorks tabulation screen. In the Tally tab, select
Load External Results File.
Navigate the files on the USB drive to find and select the GEMS results file. It should load alongside your CVR file.
At that point, the Unofficial Full Election Tally Report will show the combined VotingWorks and GEMS results.
