Public Accuracy Test (PAT) of Election Equipment
Wednesday, October 26, 2022
Are you curious about how the machines tabulate the voted ballots on Election Day? Come to the Public Accuracy Test (PAT)!
The purpose of the PAT is to demonstrate the accuracy of the electronic voting system for the public.
At this event, ballot counters are tested using a test deck of ballots with a predetermined set of votes marked on them, and comparing the totals from the ballot counter with the expected totals.
The test deck is set up so that a variety of vote conditions are tested. These include over-votes, undervotes, and cross-party voting.
