If your reading this, you probably have questions about your Voter Credit and/or ballot status. We’ve compiled this list of questions we’re receiving and the answers.
Q. How can I check my Voter Credit or see that I voted?
Q. I tried to look myself up and it says “We are sorry. We do not find a voter matching the information provided.”?
A. The form is a little tricky. Confirm that you entered your first and last names in the correct spaces (This one trips me up all the time. – James Clements, General Registrar)
Q. Okay, now where do I look?
A. Scroll down to the section labeled “Voter History” and click the +
Q. My friend or family member votes in another county and their Credit isn’t showing?
A. Because of the large call volume received on Wednesday, Nov. 4, we uploaded the voter credit overnight for everyone who had voted at the polls on Tuesday. We appreciate that Culpeper County is still small enough that we can do that for our 15 precincts. For larger localities, it’s just not possible.
Q. I mailed in my ballot on or right before Election Day and Credit isn’t showing?
A. See question above. Normally, we would wait until after the Electoral Board has completed all of their work to upload this credit so that it includes everyone (including those who voted Provisionally, or whose ballots came in after Election Day but were postmarked on time), but this year we posted Election Day Voter Credit earlier than usual. ALL VOTER CREDIT WILL APPEAR NO LATER THAN TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 10.
Q. I voted Early in the Registrar’s Office, but the website says “Vote Absentee by Mail”?
A. We use the State Dept. of Elections website and we are stuck with their labels. This one has not been updated to reflect the change to Early Voting. Technically, all voting that doesn’t happen in your precinct on Election Day is “absentee” because you were absent from the polls. Previously, most of that was done by mail and the State just hasn’t updated the label. You’ll notice, your “Application Received”, “Ballot Issued”, and “Ballot Received” dates are all the same date.
Q. Why does it say “My Ballot – Ballot Information Was not Found”?
A. The State tries to provide as much information for voters on this one page as possible. If you were to check this section before Election Day, it would tell you what to expect on your ballot when you go to the polls. Because voting has ended for the Nov. 3, 2020 General and Special Elections, this section has been cleared.
NOTE: Before the November 2021 General Election, this same section will be quite useful as it will show you which offices you should see on your ballot when you go to vote. With 13 ballot styles in Culpeper County next year, this will be a useful tool.
