El Paso County ballot-counting equipment will get tuned up Tuesday for the June 26 primary.

The Clerk and Recorder's Office will conduct its "Logic and Accuracy" tests on devices used to tally voting results, including ballot scanners and electronic voting machines. The equipment must properly display ballots, record votes and calculate results of the Democratic and Republican primaries.

Anyone can watch the testing, which starts at 11 a.m. Tuesday and is expected to continue until Thursday in the Clerk and Recorder's Office at the Citizens Service Center, 1675 W. Garden of the Gods Road.

Ballots will be mailed June 4, and voters should receive them by June 8, said Clerk and Recorder Chuck Broerman. Any voter registered with a political party will receive a ballot for that party's primary. Unaffiliated voters will receive ballots for both party primaries, but they must choose and return only one ballot in order for their vote to count.

Ballots already have been mailed to about 1,500 voters who live outside of the state, including members of the military and others overseas, reports the Clerk and Recorder's Office.
