The general election is now less than a month away, but the deadline to register to vote in it is 5:00p.m. Tuesday, October 10.

Charlottesville's Registrar Office is working hard to get all qualified adults on the books for November's election.

The office says there has been a constant flow of registrants and absentee voters.

So far, 288 absentee ballots have been cast. Staff say working on a federal holiday was a tough decision to make.

"We've had people come in, and they've absentee voted. We've had people call to check their registration application. On the day before a deadline for a significant election like this it was important for us to be open," said Charlottesville Registrar Sheri Iachetta.

Charlottesville's Registrar says she expects voter turnout be at least 50% with the current rate of absentee voters casting their ballot.
