GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. Mesa County Elections is performing a mock election for community members to test new voting equipment. Previously, the county was using voting machinery, which dated back to the 1990’s.
This new equipment is quicker, includes larger print, and is easier to access for those with disabilities.
The county has been selected as one of eight counties in the state to test this new machinery, and they are hoping to get public feedback.
“I think that if the voters will come in and look at it and give us their opinion, that’s going to shape the future of Colorado elections,” said Mesa County Clerk and Recorder, Sheila Reiner.
The mock election is to test out, and give feedback on the new equipment. Questions are light hearted, and are not rooted in political beliefs. The mock election will continue Tuesday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Mesa County Central Service building.
