13News Now has received many reports from people having trouble functioning the Virginia Voter Registration website.
We reached out to the Virginia Department of Elections to see what the issue was.
They got back to us with this statement:
The Department of Elections online voter registration system is experiencing an unprecedented activity level that has caused it to slow down and sometimes be completely unresponsive. We are working to quickly make changes to vote.virginia.gov that will allow voters to submit online registrations if they still need to register or update their information before tonight’s deadline. These changes will temporarily disable the ability to look at your existing voter record or conduct other business on the site. You should see the changes to the website shortly. If someone can’t get their form to submit using vote.virginia.gov, they should wait a few minutes and try again. The registration deadline is 11:59pm tonight.-- Edgardo Cortés, Commissioner for the Virginia Department of Elections
