Ballot-counting machines put through the test to ensure vote accuracy

This year’s elections are fast approaching and that meant a run-through for the machines counting your votes.

The state Office of Elections put the voting machines through their paces on Saturday, making sure the numbers all add-up.

There were also observers from the political parties and interest groups on hand as extra sets of eyes on the process.

“There’s about 600 pieces, under 600 pieces that we need to seal up today. Everything is going to be sealed with a unique seal to maintain the integrity till Election Day,” said chief elections officer Scott Nago.

The deadline to register to vote is Thursday, July 14.

You can do that online, in person, or mail in a form. Plus, new this year, if you miss the deadline, you can register at the absentee walk-in voting sites.

Primary Voting Day is Saturday, August 13.
