HOW TO REGISTER
The National Voter Registration Act adopted by the Virginia Legislature provides many new places to register to vote. Applications can be found at public assistance agencies, disability agencies, discretionary agencies, Department of Motor Vehicles, and in person at the Registrar’s office. Virginia now permits on line registration at http://www.elections.virginia.gov
A citizen may register year-round, but must be registered 21 days before a general or primary election or 14 days before a special election. Virginia does not have registration by political party. Any person who is 18 years of age on or before the day of the next general election can register in advance and also vote in any intervening primary or special election.
