Fairfax County Adopts New
Statewide Voter Registration System
Fairfax County’s Office of Elections will be unable to process any new voter registration applications or update registration records from Dec. 27 through Feb. 1, 2007. During this time, the office will be transitioning to a new centralized, statewide voter registration database.
However, residents may continue to submit new applications or make changes to their voter records. Qualified voters will receive a Voter Information Card by mail after their applications have been processed in February. Registration rolls also will be updated after Feb. 1.
The Office of Elections will remain open during regular business hours — Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. — throughout the transition period.
The Virginia State Board of Elections is in the final stages of implementing a new statewide registration database to comply with the Help America Vote Act, which was passed by Congress in 2002.
