Posted October 5, 2022 at 8:22 pm by

The San Juan Coun­ty Elec­tions Office sends along news about their pre-elec­tion equip­ment test.

A log­ic-and-accu­ra­cy test of bal­lot tab­u­lat­ing equip­ment used in San Juan Coun­ty for the Nov. 8 gen­er­al elec­tion is sched­uled for Fri­day, Oct. 21, at 11 a.m.

The test works by tal­ly­ing the results of a pre­pared set of test bal­lots to see if the results match the votes cast. The test will take place in the Elec­tions Office locat­ed at 55 Sec­ond St., Suite A.

A rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the Sec­re­tary of State’s Elec­tions Divi­sion will be present for the test. The test is per­formed before every local, state, or fed­er­al elec­tion to ensure that tab­u­la­tion hard­ware and soft­ware equip­ment are com­pli­ant with Wash­ing­ton State rules and will accu­rate­ly count the votes.

All inter­est­ed mem­bers of the pub­lic are invit­ed to observe, either in per­son or in the safe­ty of your own homes. The Elec­tions Office will also livestream the test on its YouTube chan­nel.
