Charlottesville voting machines are now on lockdown. The office of voter registration spent Thursday morning doing a strict security test to make sure the machines are ready for next Tuesday's republican primary.
The electoral board used a script to mimic ballots and ensure the machines were reading the results properly.
Charlottesville Voter Registrar Sheri Iachetta said, "They actually voted a specific script that we put together based on the number of people that we had on the ballot and once they vote the script it has a desired outcome. Once we get that desired outcome, it shows that every space is able to be voted."
Those machines were sealed and placed in a high security room with alarms and motion detectors. They will be delivered to precincts on Monday.
