Cut cable shuts down Virginia’s online voter registration

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — An accidentally severed fiber optic cable shut down Virginia’s online voter registration system Tuesday, the last day to register before the November general election, authorities said.

The Virginia Department of Elections said in statement on Twitter that a “fiber cut” was affecting connectivity for multiple agencies, including the department’s citizen portal and registrar’s offices, and technicians were working to repair the problem. The state’s information technology agency said in a tweet that the cable was inadvertently cut during a Chesterfield County roadside utilities project but had no estimate on when it would be repaired.
