A logic and accuracy test of ballot tabulating equipment used in San Juan County for the Aug. 6 primary is scheduled for June 19 at 11 a.m. The test works by tallying the results of a prepared set of ballots to see if the results match the votes cast. The test will take place in the elections office located at 55 Second St., Suite A, in Friday Harbor.

The test is performed before every local, state or federal election to ensure that tabulation hardware and software equipment are compliant with Washington state rules and will accurately count the votes. All interested members of the public are invited to observe.
