Question re. Voting System Reports

With Diebold voting system there is a standard report created by the GEMS
server in pdf format called "Statement Of Votes Cast" (SOVC) report that, if
run jurisdiction-wide for all counters and all races, provides all the
detailed vote count data that is needed for forensic election data analysis,
which is being routinely released now in most states. Although some
election officials will try to waste everyone's time and paper by printing
it and charging for it by the page so be ready to insist on receiving it
electronically. It is easier and quicker for election officials to forward
the original Diebold pdf report, unaltered, in pdf format in response to
your requests.

Do any of you possibly have contacts within the elections industry to find
out and inform us regarding what corresponding reports or records that ES&S,
Sequoia, Hart Intercivic, etc. voting systems would have available which
report all the detailed vote counts by precinct and by vote type for each
race that we need?

Without knowing exactly what records to ask for, it is very difficult to do
successful open records requests.

Thank you.
