D.C.'s Board of Elections and Ethics will publicly test its election equipment today to prepare for November's election.

Tests like these are performed every time the city has an election but there were major glitches and hiccups during the September primary. Part of the problem, voting officials say, was that poll workers were not familiar with all of the new technology and voting machines that were put in place for the election.

The city also added other changes to voting procedures, including same-day registration and early voting centers.

The tests will begin today and continue through Friday at the city's elections board. They are open to the public.
