PEB Exceptions Report

The PEB Exceptions Report checks for 7 exceptions that could indicate a problem in the election results; A machine that was opened and closed by different PEBs, A machine that was not opened on Election Date, A machine that was not closed on Election Date, A machine that was not opened by 7 am, A machine that was closed before 7pm, A machine that was not closed ever or A machine that has no ballots cast on it.

It should be noted that machines used for Absentee voting will almost always show the following exceptions; Open Time - they are usually opened in the middle of the day and Open Date - they are opened before election day. Unless the Absentee machines are also used for Failsafe voting on Election day, they will have Close Date and Close Time exceptions as well.
