TODAY: Deadline to vote in November, here's how to register

NORFOLK, Va. (WVEC) -- The Virginia election is just a few weeks away, on Nov. 7 and the deadline to register to vote in Virginia is Monday, Oct. 16!

Virginia does not allow same-day voter registration, so Monday is the deadline.

Mailed applications must be postmarked by Monday. In-person applications must be submitted by 5 p.m., and online applications must be in before midnight.

Any Virginian can check or update their registration information or register for the first time online.  Registered voters can also preview their ballot or request an absentee ballot through the website.

The election is Nov. 7. Voters will be choosing the next governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general. All 100 seats in the House of Delegates are also up for election. Democrats have a longshot chance at taking back control of the chamber from Republicans.

So, how do you sign up? Requirements differ state-by-state, but here are a few helpful links to make it easy: 

In Virginia, visit the Virginia Department of Elections' website.

Otherwise, you can find out how to register in your state here.
