If you are registered to vote in the Charlottesville/Albemarle area, you will vote at locations on and around Grounds. Below is some important information to keep in mind as you make your plan to vote.

Polling Locations: Open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. across the state. You must be in line at the correct polling location by 7 p.m. in order to vote.
