Help register voters

Virginia Catholic Conference provides key voter registration template,

encourages parishes to conduct drives

This year in Virginia, Election Day is Tuesday, November 7. Voters will elect Virginia General Assembly candidates – and in some areas – “down-ballot” offices. All 100 seats in the House of Delegates and 40 seats in the Senate are up for election. In many of these races, primaries are also being held on June 20.

As Catholics, we are called to practice faithful citizenship

One highly effective way for parishes to help voting-age members participate in the political process is by conducting nonpartisan voter registration drives. The Virginia Catholic Conference has updated its voter registration template, which includes 10 easy steps for conducting a drive. Parishes are highly encouraged to consider conducting drives using this resource. Please contact us at 804.225.8565 or with any questions or for further assistance. 

The registration deadline for the general election is Monday, October 16. (Voters may register after this date, through Election Day, and then vote using a provisional ballot).

In prayer and in public, your voices are urgently needed to bring Gospel values to bear on vital decisions being made by those who represent you.


The Virginia Catholic Conference is the public policy agency representing Virginia’s Catholic bishops and their two dioceses.
