Boulder County equipment testing completed for November 6 Election

Boulder County equipment testing completed for November 6 Election


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

Participants representing local municipalities, districts, and 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, 1,544 ballots were tested, including 1,494 mail ballots and 50 ballots generated from 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 General Election.

Results and test records are available for review at www.BoulderCountyVotes.org under this year’s 2018 Election Information section.
