LYNCHBURG, Va. (WFXR) — As many as 173 families in Lynchburg could face eviction when the moratorium is set to lift in September. That’s according to data from the Virginia Legal Aid Society.
With so many people potentially forced out of their homes so close to the election, some were curious about how that affects a person’s right to vote.
WFXR News asked Lynchburg’s General Registrar and Director of Elections about that topic.
“If a voter is homeless or living in a shelter,” said Christine Gibbons, “they are able to register to vote. If they meet the deadline, they can register where they’re currently at.”
She also said if someone misses the deadline but they are still registered at their previous address, they can vote in their original precinct.
