The Clerk and Recorder’s Office will conduct a public Logic and Accuracy test (L&A) on all ballot counting equipment that will be used for the 2019 Coordinated Election. This includes the Central Count Optical Scanners, and Voter Service and Polling Center ballot marking devices. The L&A test will begin at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, October 1. The testing will continue until completion, which the Clerk’s Office anticipates will be Thursday, October 3. The test will be held in the Peterson Counting Room at the Citizens Service Center on the second floor. The test is open to all those who wish to observe.

“This process is an essential safeguard for our representative-democracy. It is important that the accuracy of our equipment reflects the intent of the voter,” said Chuck Broerman, Clerk and Recorder. “That is why we believe in doing this test in an open and transparent way. People need to know they can trust the election process.”
