Check Your Virginia Voter Registration

    • Before you show up on election day, check your registration to make sure you’re still registered.
    • Deadline to register to vote, or update an existing registration: October 16, 2023 (Voters may register after this date, through Election Day, and vote using a provisional ballot).

Ways to Vote

In Person:

  • Early voting for the November 7, 2023, general election begins September 22 with the last day of early voting on November 4. All general registrar offices offer early voting. Check online for other locations, in addition to the general registrar’s office, in your jurisdiction.
  • Check the deadlines and hours for your polling location. Polling places are open on Election Day from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
  • Check your state’s COVID-19 Election information before you head to the polls. The information may change daily, so check often.

Vote By Absentee Ballot:

    • Be sure to complete your absentee ballot well before your state’s deadlines. You can return your ballot to your local general registrar’s office by 7:00 p.m. on Election Day.
    • You may also return your absentee ballot to a drop-off location. See the instructions included with your absentee mailing.
    • If you are returning your ballot by mail, it must be postmarked on or before November 7 and received by noon on Monday, November 13.

Be vote ready

Stay safe from COVID

  • Bring your own black ink pen, or a stylus or similar object for use with touchscreen voting machines.
  • Wash your hands before entering and after leaving the polling location.
  • Masks. The CDC recommends wearing a mask when indoors in public areas. Some counties might need you to remove your mask for identification purposes.
  • Bring hand sanitizer. After you cast your ballot, touching doors, or any other shared surfaces: sanitize.
  • Be prepared in case you need to wait. Bringing your own snacks and water!
  • Stay 6 feet apart. Just like at the grocery store, don’t shake hands, maintain social distancing.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or the inside of your elbow. Throw used tissues in lined trash cans.
