• Voter Registration Deadline is October 6; Poll Workers Needed for Nov. 4

        With less than eight weeks before the general election on November 4, 2008, Loudoun County election officials remind voters that the deadline to register to vote or update their address is Monday, October 6, 2008. Also, election officers are still needed to staff polling places on Election Day.

        For voters who are already registered to vote at their current address and have not moved, their registration is still valid and they do not need to take any action. But if a voter has moved since the last time they voted, they need to update their address to remain eligible to vote in November. Voters may check their current registration status online with the State Board of Elections through a link available on the Loudoun County website at www.loudoun.gov/election.

        Also, election officers are still needed to work at the polls on Election Day. There are only two requirements for being an election officer: to be a United States citizen and to be registered to vote in Virginia.

        Information about election officer training, the work schedule, and pay isavailable on the Loudoun County website at www.loudoun.gov/electionofficers or by calling the Electoral Board at 703-777-0548.
