How To Vote Yes

Make sure you’re registered in the City of Richmond

Only City Voters can vote on the casino!

To vote in the Richmond casino referendum, you must be a registered voter in the City of Richmond. Voters outside of the city will not have this question on their ballots.

The deadline to register to vote is Tuesday, October 12.

What will be on the ballot?

A referendum question giving you the opportunity to approve a Richmond casino

The casino referendum is the last question on the back of ballots and reads:

Shall casino gaming be permitted at a casino gaming establishment in the City of Richmond, Virginia, at 2001 Walmsley Boulevard and 4700 Trenton Avenue, Richmond, Virginia 23234 as may be approved by the Virginia Lottery Board?

If you want ONE Casino + Resort to open in the city, please VOTE YES.

How can you vote?

You can vote one of three ways

Due to recent changes in state law in the past few years, voting is now easier than ever in Virginia. Simply, vote one of the following ways:

Vote Early By Mail

Sep 17 – Nov 2

Any time between now and 5PM on October 22, you can request to have an absentee ballot mailed to you. After your ballot arrives in the mail and you complete it, you must return it postmarked or drop it off at a ballot drop box location on or before Election Day.

Vote early in person

Sep 17 – Oct 30

You can show up at an early voting location to request and complete an absentee ballot in person.

For a list of early voting locations, the days and times they are open, and any important changes to early voting, please visit the City of Richmond’s voting information website.

Vote on Election Day

Tuesday, Nov 2

Don’t want to vote early? That’s okay. Just show up at your regular polling place on November 2 and cast your vote!
