RICHMOND, Va. (WFXR) — Virginia voters should be on the lookout for notices in the mail, regarding their polling locations for the Nov. 8 general election.

According to the Department of Elections, district boundaries for federal, state, and local offices are redrawn every 10 years following a census, and this 2022 election will be the first general election for which the new districts will be in effect from the 2020 census election.

“Districts and polling locations have changed for some voters as part of the redistricting process following the 2020 Census,” Department of Elections Commissioner Susan Beals said. “We encourage every voter to check their polling location on their voter notice.”

All registered voters in Virginia will receive a notification with information regarding their district and polling locations, regardless of if any changes were made since the last drawing.

According to the Department, separate polling locations for town elections will not be listed, as town elections will be held on Nov. 8, instead of in May.

Due to demographic shifts, the boundaries within Virginia’s 11 Congressional districts were altered following the 2020 U.S. Census.

On Dec. 28, 2021, the Virginia Supreme Court approved the new district boundaries unanimously, after reviewing a proposal from two court-mandated special masters.

Voters can find their district and polling location information on the Virginia Department of Elections’s website.
