Voter Registration

The Constitution of Virginia requires that voters be registered in the precinct in which they live in order to be qualified to vote. The deadline to register to vote in the election, or to update one's registration information in time for the election, is Monday, May 20, 2019.

 Qualified residents who will be at least 18 years of age on or before November 5, 2019, may register and vote. Voters who are members of the uniformed services or who are overseas may visit the website of the Department of Elections for information on how they can vote in this election.

 There are three ways citizens can register or update their voter registration information:

  1. Citizens can register to vote and check their voter registration information online
  2. A copy of the voter registration form is also available online and can be printed off, completed, signed, and then mailed or hand delivered to the Registrar's Office.
  3. Citizens may come to one of the following sites and register in person:

Voter Registrar’s Office. 224 Ballard St., County Admin. Center, Yorktown · Monday-Friday · 8:30 AM – 5:00 PM
York County Library (Tabb Branch). 100 Long Green Blvd., Tabb · Every day

Your Voter Registration Information

You are able to look up your voter registration information online. Once you provide your information, you will be able to access what is on your ballot, which districts you live in, who the candidates are, how to contact the candidates (including their websites), your voting history, and where your polling place is.

Your Ballot

Not all precincts or voters will be participating in the primaries on June 11, 2019. In order to determine what your ballot will look like, you need to determine which House of Delegates district you live in. Use the following steps to determine your ballot for June 11, 2019:

Step 1. Determine your House of Delegates district by looking up your voting information. If you are in the 91st or 96th House of Delegates districts, then your district is participating in the primaries on June 11. If you are in the 93rd House of Delegates district, then you are not able to participate in the primary on June 11.

Step 2. To see the ballots that you may choose from, click on your choices below.

If you are in the 91st District, the only party holding a primary is the Democratic Party. 

If you are in the 96th District, both the Democratic and Republican parties are holding a primary to choose their nominee. Because both parties are having a primary, you must choose which party's primary you wish to vote in. 

Absentee Voting

If you are unable to go to your polling place on Election Day you may be allowed to vote absentee. If you qualify, Virginia allows us to mail you an absentee ballot, or you can come to the Registrar's Office to vote an absentee ballot in person.

Voters who wish to vote in person may come to the Registrar's Office, Monday through Friday, from 8:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. We are located in the County Administration Center, which is in Historic Yorktown at 224 Ballard Street, Yorktown, VA 23690.

Voters who wish to vote by mail have two ways that they may obtain an absentee ballot:

  1. Voters may apply for an absentee ballot online.
  2. A copy of the absentee ballot application may be obtained online, printed off, completed, signed, and then mailed (PO Box 451, Yorktown, VA 23690), emailed (registrar@yorkcounty.gov), or faxed (757-890-3449) to the Registrar's Office.

Please note the following deadlines and dates for absentee voting:

By mail: Tuesday, June 4, 2019, by 5 PM
In person: Saturday, June 8, 2019, by 5 PM

The Registrar’s Office will be open Saturday, June 8, 2019 from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. for absentee voting. Applications for registration and absentee ballots, as well as sample ballots, are available at the above registration sites and on the Registrar’s website at www.yorkcounty.gov/voting or by calling the Registrar’s Office at 890-3440 (hearing impaired: TTD 890-3300).
