Orange County, CA Voting Systems Confirmed to be Accurate After Testing

The voting system and all voting equipment were tested and audited in preparation for the March 9, 2021 Second Supervisorial District Vacancy Election.

SANTA ANA, CA – On Tuesday, February 16, 2021, the Orange County Registrar of Voters conducted mandatory and routine Logic and Accuracy testing of its voting system and components for the upcoming March 9, 2021 Second Supervisorial District Vacancy Election. California election offices are required to meet strict standards and procedures set by the California Secretary of State prior to deploying voting equipment to be used by voters.

Logic & Accuracy testing is conducted on the voting system and the voting equipment that will be used in the election to ensure the hardware and software are working together properly as individual units and as a combined system. Accuracy is tested by casting and tabulating test ballots to determine whether the expected votes and tallied votes match, and logic testing ensures that the vote tabulation program and hardware correctly interpret, summarize, and report the voters’ choices.

The logic and accuracy tests were successfully completed in a public setting. The tests confirmed the voting equipment is recording votes correctly. For more information and to view the full Tally Report, visit ocvote.com/testing
