- Early voting for the Democratic Primary (which in Charlottesville more or less determines the winners of the November General Elections!) continues through June 17 (Mondays-Fridays, and there will be Saturday voting on 6/10 and 6/17).
- Do same-day registration when you early vote now through 6/17 at your Registrar’s Office.
- Vote on Election Day 6/20 any time from 6am-7pm at your local precinct (when you use same-day registration at your precinct, you vote with a provisional ballot, which will be counted unless there’s some other problem).
- As of Thursday morning, only 2 candidates had turned in paperwork to run for School Board (non-partisan seats)… and no others appear to be in the pipeline per the City Registrar. Anyone who might be interested in running can visit the State Board of Elections website, or call 434-970-3250, or email email@example.com.
- As of last week, Charlottesville led the state in early voting!!
- City Council approved some changes to precinct boundaries and polling locations that took effect on April 7, in time for the June primaries. Around May 1 the Registrar’s Office sent postcards to all registered Charlottesville voters; if you didn’t get one, or if have any questions about voting or your voting status, call the City of Charlottesville Registrar at 434-970-3250 (Albemarle readers should call the County Registrar at 434-972-4173).
- Whenever you cast your ballot, bring an ID that meets Virginia’s criteria (see lists of acceptable IDs in English, Spanish, Korean, andVietnamese). If you don’t have an ID, or forget to bring one, you can sign a form affirming your identity and you’ll still be able to vote a regular ballot.
