Test is open to the public
(Denver) – In preparation for the November 6 General Election, the Denver Elections Division will conduct a Logic and Accuracy Test at 9 a.m., Wednesday, October 10, 2012. The Logic and Accuracy Test, which is open to the public, is conducted prior to every election and is required by state law as a step to ensure equipment is recording and counting votes properly.
Three types of voting equipment will be tested:
¨ Sequoia 400c high-speed ballot scanners, used to count paper ballots;
¨ Sequoia Edge II electronic touch-screen voting machines;
¨ iPads and printers that will be used in iAPP (iPad Accessibility Pilot Project).
Denver’s innovative iAPP project makes iPads available for use as an accessible ballot marking device by elderly voters and voters with disabilities at group residential facilities.
Testing will be conducted at the Denver Elections Division, 200 W. 14th Ave. Candidates, campaign representatives, news media, and the general public are invited to attend.
