RICHMOND , VA—Virginia voters will receive notices in the mail regarding their polling locations for the November 8 General Election beginning this week .
“Districts and polling locations have changed for some voters as part of the redistricting process following the 2020 Census , ” Department of Elections Commissioner Susan Beals said .
“We encourage every voter to check their polling location on thei......r voter notice . ”
District boundaries for federal , state and local offices are redrawn every 10 years following the census . The 2022 election is the first November general election for which the new districts resulting from the 2020 census will be in effect .
All registered Virginia voters will receive a notification containing their district information and polling location regardless of whether any changes were made .
Separate polling locations for town elections will not be listed because town elections have been moved from May to November and will be held November 8 .
Virginia maintained all its 11 Congressional districts following the 2020 U . S . Census , though many boundaries were altered due to demographic shifts . The Virginia Supreme Court unanimously approved the new district boundaries
