The deadline to register to vote in the March 3 primary - or to update your address or other registration information - is Monday, February 10. Qualified residents who will be at least 18 years old on or before November 3 may register and vote.
Virginia residents may apply to register to vote-or update their registration information-online at http://elections.virginia.gov/citizen-portal/index.html.
Voter registration applications are also available at the Registrar's Office, Yorktown and Tabb libraries, and the Griffin-Yeates Center, and online at www.yorkcounty.gov/voting.
Absentee voting, available for those who will be out of their precinct on March 3, unable to visit their polling place because of illness or disability, and those who otherwise qualify to vote an absentee ballot, has the following application deadlines:
- Online or by mail or email - 5 p.m. on Tuesday, February 25;
- In person - 5 p.m. on Saturday, February 29.
In order to accommodate those who wish to vote absentee in person, the Registrar's Office will be open Saturday, February 29, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Election information is available at www.yorkcounty.gov/voting.
The law permits emergency absentee voting in a few, very limited situations until 2 p.m. on Monday, March 2. For more information about emergency absentee voting, call the Registrar's Office at (757) 890-3440.
Additional voting information:
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 March 3, 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 election results - including York County election results - will be available on the Virginia Department of Elections website at www.elections.virginia.gov as they are reported after the polls close at 7:00 p.m. on March 3.
