Subject: RE: [election-services] Need for "state of " tracking concept in EMLcore



The only instances where this type of status is currently used are in the elements Category, CountQualifier and Value, see attached data dictionary for details.  Apart from these I have not seen any requirement for such a generic “state of” element and I would suggest if there is a need it would be a very localised situation as in the VIP requirement.  So I do not see the need to add anything to EMLCore for this.

Subject: [election-services] Need for "state of " tracking concept in EMLcore




In drafting up the EML 150 for tracking geo details of election district boundaries and associated polling places - I was looking for a construct that provides the current state of something - as in - proposed, accepted, approved - with associated date/time and authority details - since experience teaches that election boundaries change - and have a formal process for that.


This appears like it would be more broadly applicable also to other lists such as election candidates, ballot and then the 520 election results themselves - interim, provisional, official.


I did not see this there already - but I may have missed something in one of the other includes?


I'm thinking to go ahead and add these constructs to EMLcore and then include them where applicable to EML transactions to provide this capability to track the status of the content.


Feedback and thoughts please.


Thanks, DW
