Secretary of State to test election results transmission

Test is for Feb. 18 State Representative District special primary election

Secretary of State Kyle Ardoin’s office will test its electronic election resultssystem on Tuesday, Feb. 14 at 2 p.m. in preparation of the upcoming Feb. 18 State Representative District 93 Special Primary Election. During the test period, the Secretary of State’s website will display mock results. These election results are only for testing purposes and do not reflect any actual results.

Media outlets are strongly urged to test their election night broadcast systems, graphics and websites in conjunction with the test so any technical issues can be identified and remedied with assistance from the Secretary of State’s IT staff prior to election night. In an effort to prevent any confusion, media outlets are urged to put banners on their websites showing their readers/viewers that the results are only test results and not official
