The Hidalgo County Elections Department is doing their part to make sure their voting machines are working properly for the upcoming election.

On Tuesday, elections officials showed off the election machines as they undergo logic and accuracy testing in preparation for the November 2019 election.

According to a release, the testing proofs the ballot and proves that the system is properly adding votes to each candidate in the same quantity as the votes that are entered on each machine.

“The L&A of the voting machines also serves as a security measure that we have in place that insures the ballot is going to be correctly administered during the election,” said Yvonne Ramón, Elections Administrator in a press release.

The testing is done before every election that is held.
