Miami-Dade tests voting equipment tomorrow

MIAMI (October 18, 2016)

As is customary prior to each election, the Miami-Dade County Elections Department will conduct a comprehensive examination of the voting equipment that will be used in the upcoming November 8, 2016 General Election.

The Department will conduct what is known as 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. The test includes everything from opening the equipment to transmitting and tabulating results.  It is just one of several measures that are taken during the preparation of an election to ensure that voting equipment is ready for use.

The outcome of this test will be transmitted by follow up press release upon conclusion tomorrow afternoon.
