Board of Supervisors Hold Special Meeting to Discuss Adding Two Additional Absentee Voting Locations

Sept. 1, 2020

Chesterfield County Board of Supervisors

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA — The Chesterfield County Board of Supervisors will hold a virtual special meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 2 at 6 p.m. to discuss the establishment of two additional satellite absentee voting locations. The board previously voted on Aug. 26 to establish locations at the LaPrade and the Meadowdale libraries.

The two additional proposed satellite locations are:

  • North Courthouse Road Library | 325 Courthouse Road, North Chesterfield, VA 23236
  • Ettrick-Matoaca Library | 4501 River Road, South Chesterfield, VA 23803

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and recent changes in state law allowing “no excuse” absentee voting for all eligible voters in Virginia, the county anticipates an increased number of citizens voting via absentee ballots during the November election. State law requires the creation of satellite offices to be enacted at least 60 days before the November election. During the special meeting’s public hearing, Chesterfield County Registrar Constance Hargrove will address the board.

The special meeting will be held virtually, and those who wish to listen to the meeting may do so by calling +1-804-223-1418 and entering the Conference ID: 358 979 26#.

In addition, it will be streamed live on the county’s YouTube channel and WCCT Chesterfield Community Television, Comcast channel 98 and Verizon channel 28.

The special meeting will not contain a public comment section on unscheduled matters; however, residents who wish to submit a comment to the board related to this special meeting may email Clerk to the Board Sara Hall at HallSJ@chesterfield.gov.
