Subject: RE: [election-services] EML in the local elections

That is a great site! Far better than anything I have seen in the UK. How much did the EML help on the results side? Would anyone have created anything so good if you had used traditional methods?

Subject: [election-services] EML in the local elections

yesterday we had local elections in Flanders.
We used the EML specifications wherever we could, although we had to make some modifications to fit the local requirements.
The use of EML simplified interactions between systems but complicated the work for developers not familiar with XML processing. It was a challenge but EML never let us down.
You can see the use of the EML at http://vlaanderenkiest.be. The RSS feed might be of interest, it rarely gives an update but all documents are (almost completely) EML document.
We have made our own set of XML documents to provide us with aggregations and overviews. These are used in the applets: status, participation and M/F relations are all based in this. The whole site used to refresh, but since all documents are almost final not many update will be seen.
Thanks for being able to use this EML specification in a real situation.

Best regards,
