Tally Test Decks

Before tallying, insert the USB drive used to save the test deck CVR file into the Election Manager. All tabulation functionality in Election Manager is available within the Tally tab.

Load CVR

First click Tally to access the tally tab and then click Import CVR Files.

You'll be prompted to insert the USB stick on which CVRs are stored:

Once you insert the USB stick, you should automatically see the CVR files you may load. Click "Select" next to the file you want.

When loaded, confirm that the presented file name, count and precinct(s) are as expected. You may also review the ballot count by precinct and view any unofficial tally reports as desired.

Print Tally Report

Once reviewed, scroll to the Total Ballot Count and click View Unofficial Full Election Tally Report.

Click Print Report to print results or Save Report as PDF to save the election tally to a USB drive.

Before printing the report, you can preview it on screen by tapping the "Preview Report" button.

Compare Results

Compare the expected test deck results report to the tally report. These reports should match exactly. If desired, you may also manually tally the test deck ballots and check that manual tally against the scanned results.
