City and county registrars have released the final voter registration numbers, John Robinson writes for C-Ville Weekly, and they’re impressive. An admirable 80% of the city’s eligible population is registered, and a really stunning 95% of Albemarle’s eligible population has gotten signed up to vote. That’s an 11% increase for C’ville and a 7% increase for Albemarle in 2008. I know that a lot of people have been working really hard to get more people registered.

Guess what other town has seen record voter registrations?
Lynchburg. There’s an article about it on NPR here.
With Virginia as a “swing state”, this presidential race may very well come down to the difference between Charlottesville and Lynchburg. Wouldn’t that be ironic?
Have there been any local polls to take the pulse of how people are voting? I’m assuming Obama on the top of the ticket from both C’ville and Alb. County given the demographics, but just wondered if there were any details.
