Primary Election Night Reporting Update

Broward County, FL. (August 31, 2016)—  The Broward County Supervisor of Elections Office  has attached an affidavit and media statement from Mindy Perkins, CEO of VR Systems, in which she details the information regarding the early posting of election results in Broward County.

Media Statement

"In the process of providing technical assistance to the Broward County Supervisor of Elections’ Office, VR Systems created a link on the supervisor’s website that unintentionally made Broward County early voting and absentee ballot results public at 6:30 p.m. VR Systems assumes responsibility for this error, which is not in keeping with our service and performance standards. While we already have stringent measures in place to protect against errors, we are taking additional measures that include an extensive review of our procedures and technology to ensure that this never occurs again."- Mindy Perkins
