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


Participants
representing local municipalities and districts 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, 730 ballots were tested, including 680 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 Coordinated
Election.


Results
and test records are available for review at
www.BoulderCountyVotes.org under this
year’s 2017 Election Information section.
