Twin Falls County Commissioners met Monday to test the ballot counting machines.

Commissioners Dan Hall and Terry Kramer showed up to make sure the ballot counting machines are ready to go for the election Tuesday night.

Ballots were run through the machines, and then the results were up dated in their system.

This was done to ensure that they were working and counting correctly.

Hall said that this is an important thing they do.

"Obviously voting is essential to our democracy, and how we elect our officials who represent our community, so it's incredibly important that this is all accurate," Hall said.

Voting begins Tuesday morning at 8 a.m., and polls close at 8 p.m.
