True the Vote Research
often say this, and it is so true...you are part of an important
movement to ensure the integrity of our elections. Thanks for your
commitment to this cause and for being one of the first to dive into
cleaning up our voter rolls. This database is still the first of its
kind, and while the bugs identified to this point have been challenging,
it is common to have issues when you launch new software. We believe we
have worked through the major issues and are ready to tackle the job at
hand...voter registry research.
mentioned fixes would be uploaded last week. While some were, we have
others that needed additional development and took longer than expected.
These are being tested and will be uploaded later this week. I'm
listing several of the changes and updates below, all resulting from
your notifications to our Support Help Desk.
Time out period extended for the app
SAVE button has been modified to save work on the Appraisal District and Voter Registration tabs
Drop-down boxes for Challenge Reasons have been updated
Appraisal District tab fields will be blank; will auto-populate if the mailing address is the same as physical address
Addresses with extended zip codes and 5 digit zip codes should now show all registered voters
CHALLENGE button will now be used to challenge both a residence and individuals
Completion tab now used to complete records without a challenge
issues resolved including '786 voters registered at an address,' 'no
records available to research,' and 'VR#s listed without names.'
And many more updates and adjustments made throughout to buttons and functionality so that it is easier to understand and use
all of the above changes are implemented this week, we will begin
updating, recording, and posting new training videos. Upon completion,
we will send out a communication to all Researchers with a link to new
avoid frustration with the Research Database being offline periodically
while remaining updates occur, you may want to hold on research just a
few days longer. We thank you for your patience and your commitment.
Together we really can true the vote.
