---- — Debbie Richardson, Clerk of the Circuit Court, announced that there will be a public test of the Microvote Infinity voting machines at 2 p.m. on Thursday, April 3, in the assembly room of the courthouse.
The test, which is required by IC 3-11-14.5, IC 3-11-13-22, and IC 3-11-13-23, will be conducted by the members of the Rush County Election Board.
“We will be physically testing at least three of the machines to ensure that every candidate receives votes correctly,” Richardson said. “There will also be sample absentee ballot cards counted to once again make sure that every candidate on the ballot receives votes,” she added.
The test will also verify that the votes are counted correctly.
The public, candidates, representatives from political parties, and members of the media are welcome to attend.
Once the test is concluded and the board members certify that everything works properly, the machines will be reset to zero and locked until Election Day, May 6.
