    State election officials taking steps to correct erroneous voter mailing

    The Virginia Department of Elections is working to correct an error that led the department to misinform as many as 125,000 state voters of invalid address changes.

    Edgardo Cortés, Commissioner of the Virginia Department of Elections, issued the following statement regarding the misstep:

    “As part of our ongoing efforts to ensure that the commonwealth's voter registration records are accurate, the Virginia Department of Elections (ELECT) routinely receives information for voters who may have changed their address," Cortés said. "To help voters update their registration, ELECT mailed letters to voters requesting that they review and update their information. Unfortunately, up to 125,000 voters erroneously received a letter indicating they had moved out of state, when in fact they may have moved within the state."

    According to Cortés, no voter has been or will be removed from the voting rolls based simply on receiving this letter. Any voter who received the erroneous letter should verify their voter registration address by visiting the department website at http://www.vote.virginia.gov or contacting their local general registrar. Loudoun County’s General Registrar may be reached by email at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or by calling 703-777-0380.

    ELECT will send a follow-up mailing to the impacted voters to explain the error, provide instructions for verifying their current registration information, and reassure them that their voter registration has not been canceled.
