Boulder County equipment testing successfully completed for the General 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.
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, 7,468 ballots were tested, including 7,368 pre-printed ballots and 100 ballots generated by the testing board using ballot marking devices and voting by hand.
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 November 3 General Election.
Results and test records are available for review at www.BoulderCountyVotes.org under the Election Information section.
