[ARCHIVED] Vote counting equipment testing on June 8th at 10:00 a.m.


The upcoming August 1, 2017 primary election will have voters in the San Juan Island School District deciding on school board directors. There are four candidates for SJI School Board Director #1, and three candidates for SJI School Board Director #2.  The top two vote getters in each race will proceed to the general election on November 7, 2017.

A “Logic and Accuracy” test of ballot tabulating equipment used in San Juan County for the August primary is scheduled for June 8, 2017. The test works by tallying the results of a prepared set of ballots to see if the results match the votes cast.  The test will take place at 10:00 a.m. in the Elections Office located at 55 Second Street, Suite A, in Friday Harbor.

The test is performed before every election to ensure that tabulation hardware and software equipment are compliant with Washington State rules and will accurately count the votes.

All interested members of the public are invited to observe.
