The tallying of the R tables, no verification otherwise
QUESTION_ID is the question_id from electionspec.xml
data paths should NOT have a trailing slash
More than one data path because we are tallying up multiple wards at the same time
The reason for specifying the question_num is that some questions are split among multiple wards, others not.
