Two precincts will be voting at new locations for this election: Precinct 19 – Jolliff (formerly at Union Bethel Baptist Church) will vote at Alexander Baptist Church and Precinct 42 – Parkways (formerly at Greenbrier Presbyterian Church) will be voting at River Oak Church. All voters can confirm their polling location by using the interactive polling place map.
Bulk Waste Collection Notice: Due to ongoing staff shortages, Chesapeake residents needing bulk waste collection should make requests either by calling 757-382-CITY (2489) or by making an online service request, place their items at the curb on their next regularly scheduled collection day, and leave the items curbside until they are collected. The City is unable to commit to an exact time or date for these collections. As a reminder, the City continues to offer attractive employment packages, including $2,000 sign-on bonuses, for new staff in the Waste Management Division. Information and applications are available online at the City's job site.
