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 Tuesday, October 15, 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 to ensure they are able to vote in this election.

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