LEON COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) - The Leon County Supervisor of Elections Office is giving people a chance to see the voting process first hand.

Guests were able to watch officials test to ensure that the voting equipment will accurately examine, count, and record votes.

"I think it's good to prove to the public and our canvasing board and everyone else that our system's are secure and that they are tabulating correctly," said Mark Earley, Leon County Supervisor of Elections. "So we invite everyone to come in and watch the test and make sure everyone concurs with the results."

The Leon County Supervisor of Elections Office is also training more than 11,000 early voting poll workers in preparation for the primary election.
