The registration deadline for the November election is Oct. 16. Citizens who will be 18 on Election Day are eligible to register. Registered voters must re-register for change of address or party affiliation. Citizens can register at County Clerks’ offices during business hours at 100 East Washington St., Charles Town or 100 W.
