Conditional Voter Registration (CVR) begins Wednesday, February 21. Eligible residents who missed the February 20, registration deadline may complete a voter registration form available at the VRE Office or at any Vote Center.

Once the registration form has been processed and eligibility is verified the CVR ballot is counted. Residents may check their registration status on My Voter Portal.
Voters are encouraged to vote their ballot, sign their pink Vote by Mail envelope and return their ballot early.
