October 15 is last day to register to vote on November 5


September 24, 2013
     The last day to register to vote for the November 5 election is Tuesday, October 15.  On November 5, voters will elect Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, and a member of the Virginia House of Delegates
     The Constitution of Virginia requires that you be registered in the precinct in which you live in order to be qualified to vote. Qualified residents who will be 18 years old on or before November 5, 2013, may register to vote in this election.
The deadline to change registration information also is Tuesday, October 15. Registered voters who need to change their address may do so by completing, signing, and submitting a voter registration application or their voter card. If a registered voter's address has changed, the voter should update his/her address to ensure he/she remains qualified to vote.
     Any qualified resident of Virginia may apply to register to vote or to update their registration information at the places and times listed below: 
1.      Voter Registrar's Office, 224 Ballard St., County Admin. Center, Yorktown, Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
2.      York County Library (Tabb Branch), 100 Long Green Blvd., Tabb; York County Library (Yorktown Branch), 8500 George Washington Memorial Hwy, Yorktown (registration is available during library hours; October 15 library hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.)
3.      Griffin-Yeates Center, 1490 Government Rd., Williamsburg, Monday-Friday, 8:15 a.m. to 5 p.m.
     Applications and updated information may also be mailed to the Registrar's Office, P.O. Box 451, Yorktown, VA 23690. They must be postmarked by Tuesday, October 15.
     If residents complete a registration application provided by a voter registration drive, they should contact the Registrar's Office to ensure that their application is received by the Registrar's Office in time.
     The Registrar's website contains registration applications, polling place locations, district information, absentee ballot information, and contact information.
     Absentee voting for the November 5 election has begun in York County.  Election information is available at www.yorkcounty.gov/voting.
     Absentee voting is available for those who will be out of their precinct on November 5, those who are unable to go to their polling place because of an illness or disability, and those who otherwise qualify to vote an absentee ballot. The deadline to apply to vote absentee by mail, email, or fax is 5 p.m. on Tuesday, October 29. The deadline to apply to vote absentee in person is 5 p.m. on Saturday, November 2. In order to accommodate those who wish to vote absentee in person, the Registrar's Office will be open Saturday, October 26, and Saturday, November 2, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
     The law permits emergency absentee voting in a few, very limited situations until 2 PM on Monday, November 4, 2013. For more information on emergency absentee voting, call the Registrar's Office at 890-3440.
     Any voter age 65 or older or physically disabled may request a ballot from an officer of election outside the polling place but within 150 feet of the entrance to the polling place. On November 5, persons who meet one of these qualifications and who wish to vote outside the polling place can call the Registrar's Office at 890-3440, and we will alert the polling place that a voter who wishes to vote outside the polling place will be arriving.
     Unofficial statewide election results – including York County election results – will be available on the State Board of
Elections Web site at www.sbe.virginia.gov as they are reported after the polls close on November 5.
