CHRISTIANSBURG (WSLS 10) - With Election Day now less than three months away, the Virginia Department of Elections is working to make sure everyone is ready to cast their vote.

The department just launched a new campaign called Virginia is for Voters.

This is designed to streamline many of the steps that voters need to take before November 8.

Organizers created the website vote.virginia.gov where people can register to vote, find their polling place, update their address or see what is on their ballot.

Registrars at the local level said this resource will help free them up for other tasks.
