Tuesday is Va. voter registration deadline

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — The clock is ticking for Virginians who want to vote in next month’s mid-term elections.

Tuesday is the deadline to register to vote. The marquee contest Nov. 4 features the U.S. Senate race between Democratic Sen. Mark Warner and Republican Ed Gillespie.

A successor will also be elected in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District, once held by former U.S. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor.

Virginians can register at their local voter registrar’s office, at Department of Motor Vehicles offices or on the state Department of Elections website at www.elections.virginia.gov .

To complete online registration, applicants must provide a driver’s license or DMV identification card number. Applicants who don’t have a DMV number can still fill out the application online but must print and return the completed form to the registrar’s office.
