Office of Elections & Voter Registration

The Powhatan County Office of Elections is open from 9 AM to 5 PM, Monday through Friday.  The office closes on all state and federal holidays. 

IMPORTANT ALERT:  (August 6, 2020) The Center for Voter Information recently mailed absentee ballot applications to Virginia residents. The Powhatan County Office of Elections nor the Virginia Department of Elections have any affiliation with this group nor coordinates with any third-party groups on campaign efforts. 

We are aware that voters in multiple localities have received an absentee ballot application and were given pre-paid return envelopes that were addressed to the incorrect Registrar’s office.  

The Virginia Department of Elections encourages all voters that would like to receive an absentee ballot for the November Election to request one from your local Registrar or apply electronically by clicking on the icon/link below.

If you have already applied for an absentee ballot, you do not need to submit a new application. The first day that absentee ballots will be mailed is Friday, September 18, 2020. 

Other inquiries regarding this mailing can be directed to the Center for Voter Information.
