On June 11, primary elections will be held in the 91st District to select a Democratic nominee and in the 96th District to select Democratic and Republican nominees for the House of Delegates. In the 96th District, voters who wish to participate must select the party primary in which they wish to participate. The deadline to register to vote in the June 11 primaries—or to update your address or other registration information—is Monday, May 20
. Qualified residents who will be at least 18 years of age on or before November 5 may register and vote.
A partnership between the Virginia Department of Elections and the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles now allows most Virginia residents to apply to register to vote—or update their registration information—online. Residents can take advantage of this service by visiting http://elections.virginia.gov/citizen-portal/index.html
. Applications also can be obtained and submitted at the Registrar’s Office, Yorktown Library, Tabb Library, and the Griffin-Yeates Center. Applications can also be obtained via the Registrar’s website - www.yorkcounty.gov/voting
. Absentee voting for the election has begun in York County.
Absentee voting is available for those who will be out of their precinct on June 11, 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 online or by mail, email, or fax is 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 4. The deadline to apply to vote absentee in person is 5 p.m. on Saturday, June 8.
In order to accommodate those who wish to vote absentee in person, the Registrar’s Office will be open Saturday, June 8, 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, June 10. For more information about emergency absentee voting, call the Registrar’s Office at (757) 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. On June 11, persons who meet one of these qualifications and who wish to vote outside the polling place can call the Registrar’s Office at (757) 890-3440, and we will alert the polling place that a voter who wishes to vote outside the polling place will be arriving.
