Logic and Accuracy Testing September 20 at 11 a.m. 

A “Logic and Accuracy” test of ballot tabulating equipment used in San Juan County for the November 7, 2017 General Election is scheduled for September 20 at 11 a.m. The test works by tallying the results of a prepared set of ballots to see if the results match the votes cast. The test will take place in the Elections Office located at 55 Second Street, Suite A, in Friday Harbor.

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.
