Next Monday is last day to register to vote in the upcoming election

Next Monday marks the last day Alexandrians can register to vote or update their registration for the Nov. 8 general election.

Applications to vote can be submitted online before midnight on Monday, Oct. 17. They can also be submitted in-person at the Office of Voter Registration and Elections (132 N. Royal Street, Suite 100) by 5 p.m. the same day or mailed in provided they are postmarked before Oct. 17.

The only election on the ballot for Alexandria is for the United States House of Representatives 8th District. Incumbent Congressman Don Beyer (D) is facing off against Karina Lipsman (R) and Teddy Fikre (I).

“If you have moved since the last time you voted, please make sure you are registered at your current address,” a release from the City of Alexandria said. “You may check your registration at vote.elections.virginia.gov, by email at [email protected], or by calling 703 746 4050. Voters who do not update their registration records before the deadline may be required to cast provisional ballots through the Same Day Registration process.”

Alexandria is a fairly reliably blue city and the 8th District race has rarely been a particularly competitive one. Beyer, a former lieutenant governor who also served as the Ambassador to Switzerland during the Obama administration, was first elected in 2014. Since then, Beyer has won reelection by a significant margin each time, winning 76% of the vote in 2018 and 75.8% in 2020.
