Logic & Accuracy Public Viewing
The Athens-Clarke County Board of Elections will conduct a Logic and Accuracy Test on all voting equipment that will be used in the upcoming November 2, 2021 for the Municipal General Election for the City of Winterville, the Special Election to fill the vacant seat of City Council (Mary Quinn, resigned) and the County-wide ESPLOST Athens-Clarke County Georgia.
The testing will begin on Thursday, September 23, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. at the Athens-Clarke County Facilities and Landscape Management Building located at 2555 Lexington Road, Athens, Georgia, 30605 and will continue until all voting equipment have been tested and proven accurate. Testing will run from 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. each day.
The public is invited to view the logic and accuracy testing. In order to support physical distancing requirements during the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, two people can observe at a time in 30-minute time slots. Appointment times are available every half hour on beginning September 23 from 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
The State of Georgia requires Logic and Accuracy Testing through specific procedures prior to every election. As part of the process, staff with the Athens-Clarke County Board of Elections run tests on the new paper-based voting units, the check-in system, and the optical scan system for recording absentee ballots.
The first part of the process involves receiving the secure election database from the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office for the upcoming election. The system uses this database to create memory cards for the voting equipment, program the voting equipment, and produce ballots and reports.
Once the memory cards are created for the voting system, the logic and accuracy procedures test the proper creation of the voter access cards, display of the ballot on the screen, printing of the paper ballot, scanning of the paper ballot, vote collection, and tabulation results. During the process, units are calibrated, physically inspected, and recorded.
