Election equipment to be tested Tuesday

October 3, 2011

The El Paso County Elections Department will begin testing equipment for the Nov. 1 election at 9 a.m. today. 

The public can view the process, which will be done at the new Citizens Service Center, 1675 W. Garden of the Gods Road, suite 2202.

The purpose of the required testing is to verify the equipment’s ability to accurately read ballots and tabulate votes. Election judges representing each of the major political parties will be present. The clerk and recorder's Elections Department will test about 10,000 ballots.

The Nov. 1 election will be conducted entirely by mail, and ballots will be sent to active voters Oct. 11.

To be counted, ballots must be received by the Clerk and Recorder’s Office by 7 p.m. on Election Day.
