Insert the USB drive with the ballot package saved from VxAdmin. After a few seconds, VxCentralScan will display all ballot packages found on the USB drive. Selectthe correct ballot package.

As the package loads, the screen will read Uploading ballot package # of # and VxCentralScan will load each ballot style in the ballot package. When loading is complete, VxCentralScan prompts you to eject the USB drive. Select Eject USB and remove the USB drive.

VxCentralScan is now configured and in Test Mode. The screen will show No ballots have been scanned and election summary information (name, date, county, etc.) will be shown at the bottom of the screen.
