RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The Virginia Department of Elections addressed a viral social media post this morning that had Virginia voters confused about the status of their ballots.
The department of elections said they were getting calls from voters who said that the website wasn’t showing that their votes was counted on Election Day.
According to elections officials, the data isn’t communicated to the department of elections right away. It may take up to a few days before the data is on the website.
“This data is sent to the Department of Elections only after the canvass occurs by local electoral boards in the days immediately following the election. It may take a few days for your vote from 2020 to show up on our website, but please do not be alarmed,” the department tweeted.
The Hanover Registrar’s Office tells 8News “it’s like taking a test and now you’re just waiting for your teacher to send back your grade. But you definitely took the test.”
8News has reached out to the Department of Elections for a copy or link to the viral social media post.
