Charlottesville is testing its voting systems, to make sure they are ready for the Democratic Primary next week.
On Thursday, officials ran a sample ballot to make sure the machines can accept votes for every candidate in every precinct.
After the tests, the machines will be locked down and guarded until Election Day.
Sheri Iachetta, a Charlottesville Registrar, is expecting turnout to be higher than normal.
"We thought we would have like a one or two percent turnout in April and we did have a 5 percent turnout, which we were all shocked about. I'm gonna say, 15. It would be much higher than a normal Democratic Primary."
Absentee voting is currently going on at the Registrar's Office.
Polls will be open on Tuesday from 6:00 AM to 7:00 PM.
