Boulder County, Colo. Ballots and
equipment to be used in the county’s upcoming Primary Election passed a
required Logic and Accuracy Test (LAT) held this week.


Representatives
from the local Democratic and Republican parties took part in testing at the
Boulder County Clerk & Recorder's Office and confirmed the equipment’s
ability to properly read ballots and correctly tabulate votes.


The LAT also confirmed ballots are properly printed for
the election and the equipment is accurately calibrated to process ballots.
Each type of ballot and all ballot styles were tested. In all, 1,006 ballots
were tested, including 956 mail ballots and 50 ballots generated using ballot
marking devices.


Each
piece of equipment used during the LAT has been cleared of test votes and reset
to zero, ensuring the equipment is ready to count live ballots for the Primary
Election.


Results
and test records are available for review at
BoulderCountyVotes.org under the Primary Election
Information section.
