  • The Virginia Department of Elections (ELECT) discovered 149,000 more voter transactions that got stuck in an online system between the Department of Motor Vehicles and local registrars who needed to process them. The Monday announcement comes just over a week before Election Day, and after the same problem caused delays in processing 107,000 transactions, discovered earlier in October.
  • The delayed transactions include voter registrations, address updates, and other changes made through the DMV from May through September. ELECT External Affairs Manager Andrea Gaines said thanks to Virginia’s same-day voter registration law, would-be voters have been able to update and correct their information, enabling them to vote.
