Virginia: Kaine urges voters to check registration status online

Staff Report

A tool on the State Board of Elections website can be used to confirm your voter-registration status online – and Gov. Tim Kaine is urging Virginians to use it between now and the Oct. 6 deadline to register to vote in the ’08 election.

“By taking a few minutes to use this simple tool, Virginia voters can make sure they aren’t turned away on Election Day because they show up at the wrong precinct, have inaccurate voter information or are not registered to vote by the October 6th deadline,” Kaine said. “With more than 4.8 million registered voters in the Commonwealth, our General Registrars and Electoral Boards need the assistance of the general public to make the election experience a positive one.”

Virginia residents can check their voter registration status in two ways:

– By visiting www.sbe.virginia.gov and clicking on the “Check Voter Registration Status” link.

– By calling (804) 864-8901 or (800) 552-9745. Staff and volunteers answer phones at the Virginia State Board of Election Voter Registration Call Center from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

– By calling their local registrar. Contact information for registrars is available in the blue pages of the phone book.
