How to Vote
2020 is the most important election in a generation. Joe Biden calls it the "Battle for the Soul of the Nation." Fortunately the state of Virginia has made several changes to make voting easier (thanks to Democrats in the General Assembly) during the pandemic. The information below will help with reliable information on voting absentee or in person in this year.
The PCDC encourages everyone to vote as early as you can, and to make your voice heard! Information regarding how to vote absentee or early is available here from the Virginia Department of Elections.
Additional information specific to Powhatan County is available from the Powhatan Office of Elections and Voter Registration.
Changes in 2020 Virginia election law:
No Excuse Absentee Voting - Allows any voter qualified to vote in an election to vote absentee without an excuse.
Expanded Accepted IDs - adds to the list of acceptable forms of voter ID a valid student photo ID card issued by any institution of higher education in United States
Eliminated Photo ID Requirement - eliminates, for most qualified voters, the requirement to provide photo identification at the polls
Election Day Holiday - Designates Election Day, the Tuesday after the first Monday in November, as a state holiday and removes Lee-Jackson Day as a state holiday.
The Democratic Party has nominated a slate of candidates that are qualified, experienced and ready. Democrats will come into office prepared to pick up the pieces, govern and lead this country forward to Build Back Better. Click a photo to learn more!
Joe, Kamala, Abigail and Mark need your help to win on November 3rd.
The Powhatan Democratic Committee needs your help whenever you can offer it.
Virginia has elections every year, so we are always supporting local, state and national Democratic candidates. In addition, we support causes and make our presence felt in the Powhatan to show we are not the "others" - we are neighbors, parents, friends, fellow parishioners and participants in Powhatan community life.
