Court extends Va. voter registration deadline to Oct. 15; register now
Election Day is Nov. 3. Today, a federal judge in Virginia ordered the voter registration deadline extended in the commonwealth through Thursday Oct. 15 at 11:59 p.m. This followed a construction accident that took down the state’s online registration system for several hours on Tuesday, the original deadline. If you are not registered to vote, register now! You can do this entirely online or you can download, print and mail (or hand-deliver) your registration form to your registrar or elections office. Mailed registration applications must be postmarked by Oct. 15. (Additionally, be sure to update your voter registration address every time you move – also no later than Oct. 15.)
If you would like to request that a no-excuse absentee ballot be mailed to you, you must do so by Oct. 23 by 5 pm. To avoid potentially long lines on Nov. 3, you can also vote early in-person through Oct. 31.
