Voter Registration - How are elections and voter registration impacted by Coronavirus?

Voter Registration Office - The Office of Voter Registration and Elections is currently closed to the public, but is staffed from 10:00AM to 3:00PM, Monday through Friday to answer phones and email. Preparations have begun for the upcoming Dual Primary, which has been postponed to June 23 by the Governor. Charlottesville voters will be informed as further guidelines are received from the State and Department of Elections.

Most voters may submit an absentee ballot application online at the Department of Elections website. Due to COVID-19, it is strongly recommended that voters request a mailed absentee ballot using reason code 2A on the application. We will also accept applications via regular mail, email and fax (434) 970-3249. For the Primary, please indicate whether you would prefer a Democratic or Republican ballot. In-person absentee voting is now set to begin on Friday, May 8.

The deadline to register to vote for the June Primary remains Monday, May 18. Most voters can register to vote or update their registration online using the Citizen Portal.

Please contact Voter Registration at (434) 970-3250 with any questions or if you would like to request a paper registration or absentee ballot application.
