If you missed the normal registration period that ended on Oct. 16, Same Day Registration is available to you. To register and vote on the same day, you must be in the correct locality and at the correct polling location. You will be issued a provisional ballot and you will cast your vote on this provisional ballot. This is a ballot that will not be scanned and will not be reflected in the “unofficial” results on election night, but once it is verified that these are properly cast Same Day Registration provisional votes, they will be included in the “official” vote tally for the election. If you have questions about the Same Day Registration process, please contact us at or 703-746-4050
