Sarasota County Supervisor of Elections Ron Turner has invited the public to observe the logic and accuracy testing of the county’s voting and tabulating equipment that will be used in the August 28, 2018 primary election. The testing is scheduled for Wednesday, August 15, beginning at 9am in the office of the Supervisor of Elections, in the Sarasota County Terrace Building. 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. In addition and prior to the public test, elections staff thoroughly test all equipment used in the county to determine that the system is properly programmed for the election and that all system input, output and communication devices are working properly.
