Officials Test Voting Machines Before Locking Them Away

Nov. 1, 2013

Local voter registration officials have made their final checks on the voting machines ahead of Tuesday's election.

Officials at the Charlottesville Voter Registrar's Office ran tests on every machine on Friday, making sure they all work properly.

They run these tests before every election.

After the testing was done, the machines were locked down and sealed until Election Day.

"They'll put a seal on all the machines and lock them up," said Charlottesville General Registrar Sheri Achetta. "They're locked up until our movers come Monday morning to move everything to the precincts, where they get locked down at the precincts until the election officials come Tuesday morning, and they'll have the key to open everything up."

On Tuesday morning, election officials will run one last test to make sure the machines haven't been tampered with.
