Testing begins on Georgia voting machines

Testing of voting equipment has begun in Georgia.

Election officials are conducting a process called logic and accuracy testing, a routine but important process to help ensure that 34,000 touchscreens and 4,000 ballot scanners will count votes accurately this fall.

Testing depends on elections workers completing the tedious process of verifying every race on every piece of equipment, an effort that will take weeks in large counties. Logic and accuracy testing will continue across Georgia for weeks until all equipment has been checked.

Three weeks of early voting starts on Oct. 17, and Election Day is Nov. 8.
