LURAY, Oct. 11 — Page County residents have one more week to register to vote in the Nov. 8 general election. While in-person voting began Sept. 23 at the Page County Government Center on South Court Street, the deadline to register is Monday, Oct. 17.

Those wishing to vote absentee ballot by mail must submit a request by Friday, Oct. 28.

Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 8. Polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. All five polling locations in Page County will remain unchanged during this election cycle. (See who’s on the ballot below.)

Voters should have recently received new voter cards from the Virginia Department of Elections following redistricting in Richmond. Although it will not directly affect this November’s election, Page County is now a part of the 33rd District in the House of Delegates and the 2nd District in the Virginia Senate, with no changes in representation.

House Speaker Todd Gilbert is the only legislator living in the House of Delegates’ new 33rd District, which encompasses most of Gilbert’s former 15th District. While much of the two districts is the same, Gilbert picked up some of Tony Wilt’s former 26th District in Rockingham County and lost portions of Warren County that he represented. The Woodstock attorney still represents Page County, as it moved from the 15th to the 33rd District in the House of Delegates.

In the Virginia Senate, Page County shifted from the 26th District to the 2nd District, which is still represented by Mark Obenshain. The Harrisonburg attorney picked up Bath and Highland County from Creigh Deeds’ former district (which was completely broken up), as well as a portion of Augusta County from Emmett Hanger’s former 24th District. However, Obenshain lost Shenandoah, Warren and Rappahannock counties.
