2023 Special Election

Special Election Machine Testing

Luzerne County Elections is conducting a public test of its voting equipment for the January 31, 2023 Special Election. The public test begins Wednesday, January 4, 2023 at 10:00 a.m. at the voting equipment warehouse at 135 Water Street in Wilkes-Barre. The public are welcome to attend and view the test. The exact end time depends on the test itself. We anticipate spending two to three business days on the test.

 Logic and accuracy testing (commonly referred to as LAT or L&A) is a series of pre-election steps intended to ensure that ballots, scanners, ballot marking devices, and any component of a county’s certified voting system are properly configured and in good working order prior to being used in an election.
