A “Logic and Accuracy” test of ballot tabulating equipment used in San Juan County for the Nov. 2 General election is scheduled for Sept. 28 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 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, either in person or in the safety of your own homes. The Elections Office will live stream the Logic and Accuracy test on our YouTube channel San Juan County Elections: https://tinyurl.com/y4pzq86p.
