Voter Registration Assistance
Germanna Community College's Counseling Services can provide printed voter registration materials. The Counseling Services team is also available to assist students who may need assistance with completing the voter registration form. All completed forms will be submitted every five days.
Find Polling Location
Registered voters will need to find their polling place based on their address and county they live in Virginia. It is suggested that your polling location is located before the election so that you know exactly where to go to vote.
Early voting is a great option if you are not able to vote on election day or you want to avoid any last minute emergencies preventing you from getting to the polls on election day.
There are two ways to participate in early voting:
- Apply to "Vote by Mail"
- Visit your local Registrar Office, Satellite Office or Voting Center
Early Voting Locations
If you are registered to vote in the county that you live in, then you may be eligible to vote early at your nearest Registrar's Office, Satellite Office, or Voting Center.
