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 Wednesday, June 1.

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, 1,083 ballots were tested, including 1,033 scanned paper ballots and 50 electronic ballots cast on voting machines.

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 this year’s Election Information section.
