The Auglaize County Board of Elections met Wednesday morning to complete the public testing of the equipment that will be used for the upcoming May 6 election.
Board members Fran Engle, Diana Dulebohn, Brent Henschen and Bill Roth went through a simulation of voters inserting their ballots into the polling machines along with Deputy Director Peg Matheny.
The three precincts that were included in the test were Waynesfield, Wapakoneta 2B and Logan Township.
Director Michelle Wilcox explained why these three were chosen.
“The three precincts we picked for the public testing are Waynesfield because we wanted a village, Wapakoneta 2B, we wanted a city plus something with splits and then Logan is a township with splits and also has one of the splits with the St. Marys school levy,” Wilcox said.
