"I'm not registered to vote, and my permanent address is in Virginia."
You can register either in Charlottesville or at your permanent address.
Here are some ways to think about where to register.
Register in Charlottesville because...
  • Charlottesville is in a competitive Congressional district
  • It may be easier for you to vote here rather than travel elsewhere in Virginia to vote
Or, register at your permanent address if these are both true:
#1) Your permanent address is in another competitive Virginia district. The 2nd and 7th districts in Virginia are considered competitive (according to The Cook Political Report). See if your permanent address is in one of those districts here.

#2) You are confident you will be able to vote by mail, or you know you can easily vote in person at your permanent address.
  • Be aware: If UVA sends students home due to COVID-19, the Post Office will not be able to forward any mail-in ballots to another address. If you are worried about this, consider registering in Charlottesville instead.
