Some Return to Carver Recreation Center to Cast Ballot

Posted: Updated:

Tuesday, people head to the polls in Charlottesville to elect a temporary treasurer. The special election comes as one voting precinct in the city is changing again.

After four elections at a different site - the Virginia Institute of Autism - those in the Carver Recreation Center precinct will return to Carver on Tuesday to cast a ballot. The complex underwent major renovations, forcing the temporary change in voting location.       

Those affected by the precinct change have received new voter cards and voting has now moved to the second-floor gym. Election officials will be on hand to guide people.

"Carver is where we've always been and people love Carver. So this will be a smaller election. We know there probably won't be as big of a turnout so we can work on flow and stuff like that," said Sheri Iachetta, Charlottesville's voter registrar.  

Iachetta is expecting a five percent turnout.

Charlottesville voters will be able to vote for one of two candidates – Jason Vandever and John Pfaltz - vying for the role of treasurer. About 100 people have already voted absentee in the special election.

All precincts in the city are open to the election. Polls open at 6 a.m. and will remain open until 7 p.m.
