Testing of voting equipment for the August 30, 2016 Primary Election set for tomorrow

MIAMI (August 09, 2016)

The Miami-Dade County Elections Department will conduct a comprehensive examination of its voting equipment for the upcoming August 30, 2016 Primary Election. As is customary prior to every election, the Department will thoroughly test voting equipment before use.

The Department will conduct the “Logic and Accuracy Test” tomorrow at 10:00 am at the Elections Department Headquarters (2700 NW 87 Avenue, Doral, Florida).  Each step of the voting and tabulation process will be tested. Ballots will be cast according to a predetermined outcome, and then tabulated and reconciled to ensure the votes were accurately captured.
