A complete list of all voters whose records have been cancelled pursuant to this code section is available for review at the Botetourt County Department of Elections & Voter Registration, 2 East Main Street, Fincastle during regular business hours.  Voters may check view and/or update their voter registration status on the Commonwealth of Virginia Department of Elections website (elections.virginia.gov).
