Innovations on tap for first round of voting on March 21

The Slovak Statistics Office is to do an across-the-board test of its balloting technologies on March 17 in preparation for processing the results of the first round of the March 21 presidential election, the office’s press department secretary Eva Kelemenová announced on March 16. The Statistics Office conducted two tests earlier on March 3 and March 10 on its software systems and data transmission system. For the first time in its history, the Statistics Office is to use 500 special computers for processing the election results. Another innovation is the www.volbysr.sk website which will show the latest election results after the polls close, the TASR newswire wrote. TASR
