Brevard Voting Equipment Tested, Ready for Primary Election

VIERA, Florida — Brevard County Supervisor of Elections Lori Scott announced this afternoon the successful completion of voting system testing in preparation for the 2012 Brevard County Primary Election on August 14.


Florida Law requires this system review for all machines utilized during the canvass of Mail-Absentee Ballots, Early Voting, and in use at precincts on election day.


The test, known as Logic and Accuracy Testing, includes optical scan units and the ADA-compliant touch-screen voting devices.  Testing lasted approximately five hours and was conducted under the supervision of the Brevard County Canvassing Board, comprised of Judge Kelly McKibben, Commissioner Chuck Nelson, and Supervisor of Elections Lori Scott.


“The machines have been tested and are ready for deployment on Election Day,” said Supervisor of Elections Lori Scott in a press release.


Logic and Accuracy Testing is open to the public. Testing for the General Election on November 6, 2012 will be held at 9 a.m. on Monday, October 22 at the Supervisor of Elections Office at the Viera Government Center.
