Because of problems with the Virginia Department of Elections online voter registration webpage earlier this week, a federal court has extended Virginia’s voter registration deadline for the presidential election to FRIDAY, OCTOBER. 21.

If you are already registered with your current address and name, you do not need to re-register.  Look up your voter registration information at http://vote.virginia.gov/.

You may register online at http://vote.virginia.gov/ if you have a Virginia driver's license or a Virginia DMV ID, or if you are updating your current registration informationNEW DEADLINE FOR ONLINE REGISTRATION: Friday, October 21 BY 11:59 PM Eastern Standard Time.

If you don’t have a Virginia DMV driver’s license or ID, or you are not already registered, you must print, sign and mail your application so that it is POSTMARKED BY FRIDAY, OCT. 21. DON’T WAIT TOO LATE!

Or, you can register in-person.  The Charlottesville Voter Registration and Elections office will be open until 5:00 PM on Friday, October 21.  Anyone who is in line by 5:00 PM will be “on time” to register under the extended deadline.  Our normal hours are 8:30 AM until 4:30 PM, Monday – Friday.
