The Will County Clerk's office will hold a public test of the voting tabulators to be used on Election Day.

The public test will take place at 9 a.m. on Monday, March 2, at the Will County Office Building, located at 302 N. Chicago St. in downtown Joliet, according to a news release. The test will be conducted on the second floor.

“The public test is an opportunity to demonstrate that our voting equipment is functioning with accuracy as we head into the March 17 general primary election,” Will County Clerk Lauren Staley Ferry said in the release. “It’s important that we have independent parties in attendance to inspect the outcome of this test so the public can have absolute confidence in the voting results.”

Representatives from both political parties and members of the public are invited to attend.
