Lynchburg Registrar Christine Gibbons is reminding voters of recent changes to the upcoming elections due to COVID-19. “We want to be sure that all voters are aware of the two elections that have been rescheduled and their opportunities to vote absentee,” said Christine Gibbons, Lynchburg Registrar of Voters.

All registered voters may choose to vote in-person at the polls, in-person absentee at the Registrar’s Office (825 Kemper Street, Suite A) or absentee by mail. In order to protect voters’ health, the Virginia Department of Elections is encouraging voters to vote absentee in the upcoming May and June elections. Also, according to the Virginia Department of Elections, voters may choose reason 2A - “my disability or illness” for absentee voting in the elections due to COVID-19. Voters who choose the absentee option should do so as soon as possible so their ballots can be returned by mail and received by Election Day.

 Last day to request an Absentee Ballot be mailed: May 12, 2020
 Last day for in-person Absentee Voting: May 16, 2020

Citizens may request an absentee ballot online at www.elections.virginia.gov or by calling
(434) 477-5999 to request an absentee ballot application be mailed. To determine what Ward you live in, visit http://mapviewer.lynchburgva.gov/mycityservices/.

Voters can also request online that an absentee ballot be mailed to them by visiting www.elections.virginia.gov/voterinfo or by downloading and printing a request form at www.elections.virginia.gov/forms and returning the completed and signed form to the Registrar’s Office by mail, fax, or scanned attachment to an email. Voters completing a paper application may use reason 2A, “my disability or illness” to complete their form. Voters completing an online application to request an absentee ballot will need to follow the prompts and select “I have a reason or condition that prevents me from going to the polls on Election Day.” Then choose the option “My disability or illness” as the reason for the request.

According to Gibbons, precautionary efforts will be undertaken on Election Day to help safeguard both the poll workers and voters. “We are working with the City to provide our workers with personal protection equipment and will be taking other measures to protect them and the voters,” said Gibbons. “We will be asking voters to observe social distancing guidelines and to be patient as we work through this somewhat unprecedented election environment.”

On behalf of the Lynchburg Electoral Board, I am writing to inform you that the Electoral Board voted unanimously this morning to support Governor Northam's recommendation to the General Assembly that May 2020 elections be moved to November 2020, and to communicate this decision to relevant leaders and our public. We did so because the health of our city's citizens will continue to be under threat from the coronavirus for many more months, and our poll workers and voters include many elderly and minority citizens who are at particular risk.

Sincerely,
Patricia Bower, Chair

VOTING: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

On Wednesday, April 8, Governor Ralph Northam announced that he is recommending postponing the May 5 municipal elections to November and delaying the Tuesday, June 9 congressional primaries by two weeks (June 23) out of a concern for people voting in-person during the coronavirus pandemic.

On Wednesday, April 22, the General Assembly will have to decide whether or not to delay the municipal elections. However, the Governor does have the authority to delay the June 9 congressional primaries and does not need additional approval to do so.

Because it is unknown whether or not the General Assembly will approve the Governor’s request to change the May election, the Lynchburg Registrar’s Office is recommending that voters proceed and vote absentee.

“The deadline to request to have an absentee ballot mailed to a voter is Tuesday, April 28,” said General Registrar Christine Gibbons. “Since the General Assembly won’t meet until April 22, I would encourage people to go ahead and apply to have a ballot mailed to them just in case the General Assembly should not approve the change.”

Voters may also vote in person; however, the Virginia Department of Elections encourages voters to protect their health during COVID-19 outbreak. Voting absentee in the upcoming local May elections is strongly encouraged. Voters may choose reason 2A for absentee voting in the May 2020 elections due to COVID-19. Voters who choose the absentee option should do so as soon as possible so they can receive their ballots in time to return them by mail by Election Day, May 5.
