Testing the Equipment

October 16th, 2008 by flanews

Optical scan and touch-screen voting machines are being tested this week as supervisors of elections statewide gear up for early voting. State law requires one out of every 10 machines to be tested at random before early voting begins. Leon County Supervisor of Elections Ion Sancho said his testing machines is a key to making sure things go smoothly at the polls.

This is again the kind of reserve and protection that we put behind the process to make sure that no problem can emerge on Election Day that would cause any voters votes from not being cast or counted, said Sancho.

Early voting begins Monday.
