- An accidentally cut cable has caused the entire Virginia voter registration system to go down on the last day to register to vote before election day. The Virginia Information Technology Agency tweeted that a fiber cut near Route 10 in Chester, Virginia is to blame.
- “Due to a network outage, the Citizen Portal is temporarily unavailable. We are working with our network providers to restore service as quickly as possible,” the Virginia Department of Elections posted on their registration website.
- There was no estimate on if, or when, the problem would be fixed Tuesday. Once the database issues are fixed, Virginians will be again able to register to vote online with identification, or in-person at their voter registrar’s offices.
