Colorado Springs — On Tuesday, El Paso County Secretary and Recording Bureau conducted a logic and accuracy test of all ballot counting devices used in the 2022 primary.

The test consists of three components.

  1. System Functional Testing – Make sure that voting for all options is tested and placed in the correct “bucket” of results. This test confirms that the election was properly programmed by the county officials of the Election Management System (EMS).
  2. Hardware Functional Testing – Check if the EMS hardware works properly. For example, powering on and off the device, verifying that the battery-powered device is charged, printing from the ImageCastX ballot marking device, and so on.
  3. Integrity Checks – A bipartisan testing committee must select a minimum of 25 blank ballot samples each for the vote of choice. The test board then manually aggregates these ballots, aggregates them with the scanner of your choice, and then matches them against the number of machines.

“The test lab says that every 500,000 people shouldn’t have more than one error,” said El Paso County Clerk and Recorder Chuck Broerman. “Our machine reached 500,000 but no errors. Up to 1 million times-no errors. Up to 1.5 million times – no errors. Up to 2 million times-no errors. And the test lab said,” We are good, I think you have good equipment set there. “

The test was open to the public and could be seen from outside the tabulation room.
