ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - Election day is less than two weeks away and Friday is an important day in the preparation process for the city of St. Louis.  Officials with the St. Louis City Board of Election Commissioners will test the voting equipment to be used on election day on November 6th.  It`s called a public 'logic and accuracy' test.

Election authorities just conducted the same kind of test three weeks ago. That test was in preparation for the special election held to fill the seat of late St. Louis alderman Gregory Carter who was killed in an car accident in August.

The logic and accuracy test is designed to make sure the voting machines will work correctly on election day when it comes to casting and counting your ballots.
It is a statutory requirement to do the tests.

As the process takes place, absentee voting continues in the city.  It started September 25th.  Those who qualify can vote absentee until the day before the election on November 5, including the Saturday before the election on November 3rd.
