The 10.2 Polling Place Web Application Template requires a route service in order to provide driving directions. The config file refers to http://tasks.arcgisonline.com/ArcGIS/rest/services/NetworkAnalysis/ESRI_Route_NA/NAServer/Route service. Isn't this the service that is going to be retired by Esri on December 31st? If so, assuming most people don't have their own routing service, is the only option to use the arcgisonline version that will consume your organization's service credits? It doesn't look like the application is set up to handle the authentication required.  Will it be updated?

Hello Sebastian,

We just finished the blog post and four technical articles for all the applications that will be affected by this change, this should include all the information you need for moving forward.

Lindsay,
  Thanks for your response.  I'm planning to stick to my 10.1 configuration of the template because I had to make several modifications.  It looks like updating the geocode service for those apps that use one is fairly easy, but the network analysis (routing and directions) requires you to update the web application to provide authentication using your organizations ArcGIS online account (and consume your credits).  I look forward to the October 16th meetup and the fourth quarter update of the 10.2 template mentioned in the blog post because the only documentation I found in the ArcGIS online help (pasted below) does not go into enough detail for me to successfully implement generation of a secure token and its use when consuming the service.
