Marion County’s public test of voting equipment on Monday
Clerk White to host pre-election media briefing during testing period
INDIANAPOLIS – The Marion County Election Board is conducting a public test of the voting equipment used in the upcoming special election on Monday, October 26 at 9 a.m. at their warehouse located on the east side of Indianapolis.
Like any election, voters will have the opportunity to cast their vote using the iVotronic touch screen machine or paper ballot. However, voters will place their paper ballots in a ballot box and poll workers will hand count the results when the polls close. For this reason, staff will be only testing the iVotronic touch screen machine at Monday’s event.
During the public test, Marion County Clerk Beth White will be holding a press briefing at 9:30 a.m. to bring local media up to speed on the details of the special election. Members of the press can also pick up their media watcher credentials at the conclusion of the briefing. As a reminder, reporters and photographers must have a credential to enter any polling location on Election Day.
