Westmoreland Officials Anticipating Low Turnout

Westmoreland County Registrar Kristin Hicks is anticipating a low turnout for the Nov. 5 general election, but is hopeful that the turnout will exceed the 37 percent of registered voters who participated in 2009, the last Virginia gubernatorial election.


“Based on the absentee voting we have seen already, maybe we will do better,” Hicks said.  “I hope so.”  Westmoreland County has almost 12,000 registered voters.

Westmoreland County voters who wish to vote absentee can do so now either by mail or in person.  Those wishing to register or update their registration have until Oct. 15 to do so.

Voters can check their registration status online at www.sbe.virginia.gov. Voters who need to update registration information may complete a Virginia voter registration application available from that State Board of Elections website or contact the state board directly to check registration status at (800) 552-9745.

Another convenient local option is for voters to contact or visit Westmoreland Registrar Hicks’ office at 105 Court Square in Montross with questions.  Hicks’ phone number is 804-493-8898.  

 

ABSENTEE VOTING IN PERSON – NOW
Absentee voting is available now which enables voters to cast their ballots in advance of Election Day.

 There are numerous reasons that make voters eligible to vote absentee. It’s an effective choice for those who expect to be out of the county on Election Day for any reason, including travel, appointments, long commutes, or those with unpredictable work hours.

Any Westmoreland voter with a question about whether they qualify to vote absentee should contact the registrar’s office.  Absentee voting can be done in one of two ways, either by mail or in-person at the registrar’s office. The easiest way to vote absentee in advance of the election is to go to the Westmoreland Registrar’s office. There you may fill out an application for absentee voting, then vote on the spot.

The deadline to apply for an absentee ballot by mail is Oct. 29. The deadline to apply for an absentee ballot in person is Nov. 2.  The Westmoreland Registrar’s office is located on the square across from the Westmoreland County Courthouse. It is open on weekdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and will be open two Saturdays, Oct. 26 and Nov. 2, to accommodate absentee voters.
