San Juan – The State Elections Commission (CEE) reported this Wednesday that for several days it has been carrying out logic and precision tests to calibrate and validate the operation of the 6,075 electronic counting machines that it will use in the general elections on November 3.
As part of the process, the test data is entered using the logic and precision ballots into the electronic counting machine.
Then, the data are processed electronically and at the end the results of those tests are disclosed on the EEC website, the agency said in a written statement.
Setup is typically done weeks before Election Day in a real setting and in keeping with the day of the event.
Once the tests are complete, the results are reset to zero, the EEC said.
“The results of these tests are not official or preliminary data, since the process of counting the votes has not started. The EEC will begin to release the official results on November 3, once the polling stations close at 5:00 in the afternoon ”, stated the President of the EEC, Francisco J. Rosado Colomer.
