Twin Falls County holds public test for ballot counting system

By  | 

TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) - Twin Falls County is making sure they are ready for Tuesday's election by holding a public test of the ballot counting system.

Clerk of the District Court Kristina Glascock said they are required to do a public test of the machines before election day.

She said the county does multiple tests on the machines before they conduct the public test.

With ongoing talks about voter and election fraud nationwide, she told KMVT there is no issue here in Idaho.

"We don't have the fraud that you hear throughout the nation. We are very careful that every person that's registered to vote is only voting once," she said. "We make sure that that ballot is accounted the whole way through the process to election night."

Glascock said they saw a huge increase in early voting in the county.

"We did almost 5,000 in early voting. We mailed over a little over 2,000 absentee ballots," Glascock continued. The interest has been really high for this election, so the turnout for tomorrow should be really good."

She urges voters to visit the Idaho Votes website to make sure they know which poll place they need to go to.
