Effective February 22, the Pittsylvania County Department of Elections and Voter Registrar is moving into the new Pittsylvania County Elections and Training Center, located at 18 Depot Street, Chatham, VA 24531. The former Elections Department building did not have adequate space to accommodate such a high volume of early voters, much less keep them socially distanced.
"The old facility did not allow the department to function at its highest level," said Kelly Keesee, Pittsylvania County Registrar. "Each room we used for multiple purposes with very little working space. Coronavirus and physical distancing requirements created massive restrictions on service to voters. We also faced internal concerns to keep staff distanced to continue operating. At the new facility, we have dedicated space for all of our functions under one roof. This will streamline our functions and greatly improve our service to the voters."
Citizens will be able to register to vote, change their address, and cancel their voter card at the new facility. Those interested in running for local elected offices can also complete candidate processing at the new Elections Center.
This facility will also become the voting precinct for Chatham and where registered voters can fill out their ballot early, in-person for 45 days prior to every election. Statewide primaries are slated for June 8 and the General Elections are scheduled for Nov. 3.
Formerly the home of Pittsylvania County Social Services, the new facility was renovated with CARES Act funds to host the Elections Center and serve as a training and storage facility for other Pittsylvania County departments. Pittsylvania County Public Safety staff will be moving into former Registrar's Office located at 110 Old Chatham Elementary Lane, Chatham, VA 24531.
