RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - The deadline is looming for Virginians to register to vote in the Nov. 5 election.
The Virginia State Board of Elections is reminding voters that the registration deadline is Tuesday. The board says residents are encouraged to check their registration status and polling place on the board's website at www.vote.virginia.org , or by calling their local registrar's office.
Voter registration applications sent by mail must be postmarked by Tuesday. Applications are available at the local registrars' offices, the Department of Motor Vehicles or on the board's website.
Virginia voters will decide statewide races for governor, attorney general and lieutenant governor.
