VA Voter Registration Extended

(Wednesday, October 14, 2020) – A federal judge has extended Virginia’s voter registration until Thursday, October 15th at 11:59pm.  The decision comes after yesterday’s website nightmare when a construction worker accidentally cut a cable, knocking out many of the state’s websites.

Civil rights groups and others had sued saying the website debacle cut short the time people would have been able to vote and that lack of time disenfranchised voters.

The order by U.S. District Court Judge John Gibney Jr. Wednesday morning allows voters to register through the Board of Elections website until 11:59 p.m. Thursday.  Voters can also register in person at local elections officers or other agencies until 5 p.m.  Mail-in registrations must be postmarked by tomorrow
