An outage Tuesday is preventing Virginia residents from registering to vote on the last day to do so.
“Due to a network outage the Citizen Portal is temporarily unavailable,” the Virginia Department of Elections website says. “We are working with our network providers to restore service as quickly as possible.”
The agency tweeted that a “fiber cut” near the Commonwealth Enterprise Solutions Center is causing the outage.
“Technicians are on site and working to repair; updates will be provided as work progresses,” the agency tweeted.
It’s unclear when the portal is expected to be restored.
“Please check back later for your online voter registration or absentee needs,” the sites says.
Oct. 13 is the last day Virginia residents can register to vote ahead of the Nov. 3 election. The site offers options to print paper applications for voter registration and vote by mail requests.
