Independent workers publicly tested the election equipment. Voting equipment is tested ahead of each election.

Supervisor of Elections Mark Andersen says testing helps maintain voter integrity.

“There’s intentional errors put on the ballots to run through the system to show that we can see any errors or mismarked ballots or the tabulation is correct,” Bay County Supervisor of Elections Mark Andersen said. “We also have a second system that we run the ballots through here and Bay County so that we have two separate systems validating the way the ballots were marked or being tabulated the way they were marked.”

Andersen says the test went well and there were no problems with the voting machines.

Early voting for municipal elections begins next week, and election day is April 16th.
