Election Information

SAN JUAN COUNTY, WA. January 2, 2024 – San Juan County’s Elections office will be holding a “Logic and Accuracy” test of ballot tabulating equipment used for the County’s February 13, 2024, Special election. The test is scheduled for January 9 at 11:00 a.m. 

Logic and accuracy testing is a standard pre-election procedure.
