In these uncertain times one thing is still certain, the Office of the General Registrar’s commitment to continue to provide premier services to the citizens of Goochland County.
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Virginia Department of Elections as well as the Goochland County Office of the General Registrar encourage all voters to protect their health and the health of others and vote from home.

Every voter that votes absentee by mail is one less voter in line on Election Day, limiting the risk of spreading the virus within the community and protecting those that serve as Officers of Election at the polls.
