The Voter Participation Center is sending Voter Registration Applications to Citizens throughout the state.  In the City of Winchester, approximately 1,958 residents will receive the VPC mailing, scheduled to reach households September 5-9, 2017.

The Voter Participation Center is NOT a government agency.  VPC is a completely independent organization that has no affiliation with the State Board of Elections, Virginia Department of Elections,  or local Voter Registration office in Virginia.

In many cases, residents receiving the mailing are already registered to vote.  The address list used by the VPC is not always current.  

If you receive a mailing from the Voter Participation Center asking you to register to vote, please first verify your voter registration status by checking or contact our office at 540-545-7910.
