The D.C. Democratic primary will take place April 3.

The District's Board of Elections and Ethics is testing the equipment that will be used to count votes in next month's primary.

The primary is scheduled for April 3 and the Board wants to make sure everything is ready before voters head to the polls. A public test of the voting equipment and software used to count votes is planned for this Saturday at the Board's offices near Judiciary Square.

Board personnel also will distribute poll watcher and election observer badges that allow access to early voting centers and to the polls on election day.

Of course, the Republican primaries and caucuses this campaign cycle have been very competitive in the party's presidential nominating contest. That race will be closely watched in the District and in Maryland, which also holds its primary April 3.
