Voter Registration
The General Voter Registrar is appointed by the Dickenson County Electoral Board, composed of three members appointed by a majority of the circuit judges of the 29th Judicial Circuit of which Dickenson County is part. Electoral Board appointments are based on representation of the two political parties having the highest and next highest number of votes in the Commonwealth of Virginia for Governor at the last preceding gubernatorial election.  The Electoral Board also appoints Officers of Election to work at polling locations during elections.

Function & Purpose

The Voter Registration Department performs several vital functions for our community:
  • Accept voter registrations and address changes or updates
  • Prepare for elections:
    • Order election supplies
    • Ensure that officers of election are appointed and trained, machines are programmed, ballots are printed, and absentee ballots are processed and mailed
    • Build the election according to the type of election such as: Primary, Town, Special or General to download into the Electronic Poll books. Poll books for each precinct are then programmed, tested and reset for election morning containing the names of all registered voters for that precinct
  • Prepare yearly budgets for the Registrar’s Office and the Electoral Board budget
  • Remove all deaths and felonies from the voter registration list
  • Accept registrations for other localities in Virginia and mail them to the correct locality
  • Ensure that National Change of Addresses (NCOA’s) are researched and processed
  • Process the NVRA List Maintenance Program: This process cancels the voter registration record of those voters whose registration record has been in an “Inactive” status for two (2) successive General Elections for Federal Office.
