Comprompter VoteMaster XL debuts with South Dakota primary

The recent South Dakota Democratic Party primary was a first for Comprompter’s new VoteMaster XL election night reporting system.

For the first time, VoteMaster handled an entire election in which all data ingest, printouts, Web feeds and CG output were completely in XML format. Prior to the primary, the South Dakota Secretary of State office completed a total rewrite of its election results data output software to distribute results on its Internet site.

The XML-based media site performed extremely well. Comprompter wrote an SD-SS WebWire to ingest the data and parse it into the VoteMaster SQL database.

Rather than transcoding the data into an ASCII text file first, the new approach saved valuable time by processing the data directly in XML, storing it in XML and having VoteMaster automatically draw out the finished XML data to a character generator and Comprompter’s Web-posting module.
