Voter registrar makes move in Boydton / September 01, 2021

The Mecklenburg County Voter Registrar’s office is moving to 316 Washington Street in Boydton, into the former home of the Bruce Library.

Registrar Jason Corwin said he does not have an exact date for when the move will take place, but expects it to be during the first full week in September. As of Tuesday, brick masons were completing the installation of a handicap-accessible ramp in front of the building.

The Voter Registrar’s Office registers voters, maintains election records for the county’s nine electoral districts and administers early and absentee voting in local, state and federal races. The office is now located at 439 Madison Street, Boydton.

While it is likely that most county offices will be closed to the public when early voting begins later this month, Corwin said his office will be open at its new location for the convenience of early voters. On Monday, County Administrator Wayne Carter ordered the closing of county offices, due to high community spread of the coronavirus.

The first day for in-person early voting in the 2021 November general election is Friday, Sept. 17.

Corwin said other dates for voters to keep in mind ahead of the 2021 November general election are:

Oct. 11, the last day to register to vote

Oct. 22, the last day to request an absentee ballot by mail

The Registrar’s Office hours are Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Early voting will be available on two Saturdays, Oct. 23 and Oct. 30, which also is the last day for early voting. The special Saturday hours are from 9 a.m.-5 p.m.

Corwin said the Board off Supervisors approved the relocation last year because the Registrar’s Office had outgrown its existing space. It took several months for the new building site to be renovated, and for a new parking area and access ramp to be installed.

The new quarters will more than double the space the Registrar’s Office now has available for storage, training, and for voters casting their ballots.

Last November, Corwin and Deputy Registrar Darcell Terry assisted more than 6,600 people who voted early. Corwin anticipates that at least that number of persons will take advantage of early voting this November now that Virginia has expanded opportunities for casting a ballot before Election Day.
