Public invited to attend logic and accuracy testing for March 20 elections

~Supervisor of elections to test voting equipment for March 20 elections~

(SARASOTA, FL) - Sarasota County Supervisor of Elections Ron Turner invites the public to observe the logic and accuracy testing of the county’s voting and tabulating equipment that will be used in the March 20, 2018 elections.

The March 20 elections include the countywide School District Ad Valorem Millage Election, which is open to all registered voters in the county, and the Holiday Park Park & Recreation District Election and Town of Longboat Key General Election, which are open only to registered voters in those two local jurisdictions.

The testing is scheduled for Wednesday, March 7 at 9:00 a.m. in the office of the Supervisor of Elections, Sarasota County Terrace Building, 1st floor, 2001 Adams Lane, Sarasota, Florida.

Florida law requires the supervisor of elections to conduct a public test on a random sample of the county’s automatic tabulating equipment and reporting software that will be fielded on election day and during early voting and used to tabulate vote-by-mail ballots. The test is conducted to ensure that the equipment and software are operating and recording accurately.
