CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA — With the General Election only a few weeks away, Chesterfield County is encouraging its residents to get registered to vote on Sept. 22 in conjunction with National Voter Registration Day.

First observed in 2012, National Voter Registration Day aims to register as many voters before the General Election in a single day by encouraging existing voters to check on their voter registration status and make any changes to their addresses, names and citizenship.

As of Sept. 21, there were 254,626 registered voters in Chesterfield County – up from 253,484 recorded county registered voters at the beginning of the month.

But there’s always room for more.

To register to vote in Virginia, you must:

  • Be a resident of the state (a person who has come to Virginia for temporary purposes and intends to return to another state is not considered a resident for voting purposes).
  • Be a U.S. citizen.
  • Be 18 years old (any person who is 17 years old and will be age 18 at the next general election can register in advance and can also vote in any intervening primary or special election).
  • Not be registered and plan to vote in another state.
  • Not currently declared mentally incompetent by a court of law.
  • If convicted of a felony, your right to vote must have been restored.

There are multiple ways to register to vote across Chesterfield and the commonwealth:

Voters can also download a PDF copy of the registration form (En Español) (Tiếng Việt) (한 국어). Complete the form and mail it to the county’s Registrar’s Office at P.O. Box 1690, Chesterfield, Va. 23832; or deliver the completed registration form in person to 9848 Lori Road.
