A Federal Judge Extended Virginia's Voter-Registration Deadline Through Friday

Oct 20, 2016

Virginia residents now have until the end of Friday to register to vote after computer glitches kept some from successfully signing up earlier this week.

A federal judge on Thursday extended the registration deadline to 11:59 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 21, to make up for lost time, officials said. Some Virginians experienced technical difficulties while trying to register to vote on the state’s website nearing the original Monday deadline, according to the Associated Press.

Judge Claude M. Hilton of U.S. District Court in Alexandria said voter registration is to resume immediately.
