Voting districts shift, check with registrar

Westmoreland County will be split by Virginia Senate Districts beginning with the November 2011 election.  Voters in local election districts 3, 4 and 5 will remain in the 28th State Senatorial District and will vote for the seat now held by Richard Stuart (R).  Voters in local election districts 1 and 2 have become part of the 4th State Senatorial District and will vote for the seat now held by Ryan McDougle (R).

After obtaining preclearance from the Department of Justice for our local redistricting plan, work began in the registrar’s office to assign all areas in the county accordingly by the new local plan as well as by the state’s new plan. 

It is very important to note that the State Senate lines are based on the old local election districts, not the new ones recently approved by the

Department of Justice.  Be prepared. There will be voters who have been moved to local election district 2 who will still be in the 28th Senatorial District, even though local district 2 is now in the 4th Senatorial District. Also, some voters who have been reassigned to local election district 3 will remain in the 4th Senatorial District even though local district 3 is in the 28th Senatorial District.

Sound confusing?  It is!  But the Voter Registration Office has made the necessary changes to voters’ records that will allow our elections to continue to run smoothly and efficiently.  If you have not updated your address with the registrar since the county began using street names and numbers for residence addresses in 1998 — and there are hundreds of voters who haven’t — please send your updated residence address (street and house number) and your mailing address if different from home address to:  Voter Registrar, PO Box 354, Montross, VA 22520.

Including a telephone number will be extremely helpful if the office has need of additional information. 

New voter cards will be mailed prior to the Aug. 23 Republican Primary Election to all voters affected by a change and will include all necessary information for the voter based on the residence address on the voter’s record.  Changes as a result of local redistricting will be in effect for the August primary.   All name and address changes must be made by Aug. 1 for this election.

The new senate lines will not be an issue in the Aug. 23 Republican Primary for the House of Delegates seat.  Also, Westmoreland County is wholly contained within the 99th House District, which will be on the ballot in November 2011.

Voters will only have to appear at their local assigned voting precinct even if that precinct is split by senate lines.  Our trained officers of election will be able to provide the appropriate ballot based on a voter’s residence location and senate district assignment. 

If you have questions concerning your registration or election-related issues, please call the Registrar’s Office at (804) 493-8898.
