~Supervisor of elections to test voting equipment for Feb 13 House District 72 Special Election~

(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 February 13, 2018 House District 72 Special Election.

The testing is scheduled for Wednesday, January 31, 2018 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.
