Ahead of the Nov. 8 General Election, Chesterfield voters will be able to begin submitting their early voting ballots in person starting tomorrow, Sept. 23, at the Registrar’s Office (9848 Lori Road).
Early voting at the Registrar’s Office will be available weekdays from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. starting tomorrow. Voters may also vote in person on Saturday, Oct. 29 and Saturday, Nov. 5 from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. as well as on Sunday, Oct. 5 from noon until 4 p.m.
Because of changes made at the state level for how precincts will report their votes, each precinct has its own ballot. So, it’s important that you know your polling place when you go to vote. If you plan to vote early, confirm ahead of time where your polling place is located by visiting the State Board of Elections website.
Beginning on Monday, Oct. 24, the county’s five satellite early voting locations will open. These sites are available Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. as well as on Saturday, Oct. 29 and Saturday, Nov. 5 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. These five library facilities throughout Chesterfield include:
- Ettrick-Matoaca Library (4501 River Road)
- Clover Hill Library (6701 Deer Run Drive)
- LaPrade Library (9000 Hull Street Road)
- Meadowdale Library (4301 Meadowdale Blvd.)
- North Courthouse Road Library (325 Courthouse Road)
Above all, please be patient when coming to vote.
Voting By Mail
If you would like to request a vote-by-mail ballot, the application must be received by the Registrar’s Office by 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 28. You may return your vote-by-mail ballot by mail or commercial delivery service. The ballot return envelope must be postmarked no later than Election Day and received in the Registrar’s Office before noon EST on Monday, Nov. 14.
You may also return your vote-by-mail ballot by depositing it in the designated drop boxes located inside each early voting site during designated polling hours or on Election Day at any polling location by 7 p.m. EST.
You do not need to wait in line to deposit your ballot into the designated drop box.
Registering to Vote
For those who wish to register to vote or update an existing registration, that deadline is Monday, Oct. 17. Voters may register after this date and vote using a provisional ballot. However, for those who do this and vote on Election Day, they must cast the provisional ballot at the precinct where they would be registered to vote in order for their ballot to be counted.
