Now that Virginia is a same-day registration state, some of the rules are a bit different! Complete info is on our voting info page, but two things we’ll flag here:
- After regular voter registration ends on October 17, people living in Charlottesville who are eligible to become Virginia voters can, from 10/18-11/5, go to the Registrar’s Office (City Hall Annex, 7th St. NE off of Market St.) to register to vote and cast a provisional ballot.
- Even on Election Day (11/ 8) itself, they can go to their mailing address-based polling place, fill out a voter registration application form, and cast a provisional ballot (to find the right polling place, refer to the updated webpage above or call the Voter Registration Office at 434-970-3250).
These are important changes, please spread the word!
