Virginia’s voter registration website went down on Tuesday, the final day for people in the state to register ahead of Election Day. As of early Tuesday afternoon, the website was still not working. 

“Due to a network outage, the Citizen Portal is temporarily unavailable,” the Virginia Department of Elections wrote on its site Tuesday morning. 

Officials said on Twitter that a “fiber cut” in Chester, near the Commonwealth Enterprise Solutions Center, impacted connectivity for multiple state agencies. The cut cable, which appeared to be an accident, affected both the voting portal and the registrar’s offices. 

“We are working with our network providers to restore service as quickly as possible,” the department said. “Please check back later for your online voter registration or absentee needs.”

Virginia’s Citizen Portal has gone down due to a cut fiber on Tuesday, preventing people from registering to vote online on the last day of voter registration in the state, the Department of Elections says.

Residents can still register to vote by mailing in or dropping off paper applications.

Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax said the outages are reported statewide and called for the voter registration deadline to be extended beyond Tuesday. However, the Board of Elections hasn’t announced plans to adjust the deadline.

The outage is also affecting registrar’s offices, the Virginia Department of Elections said on Twitter.

Virginia’s online voter registration website went down Tuesday morning on the final day of voter registration because of a cut fiber cable, according to the Department of Elections.

Virginia’s online voter registration website went down Tuesday morning on the final day of voter registration before the 2020 election because of a cut fiber cable, according to the Department of Elections.

Multiple Virginia agencies were affected.

In a statement, the Virginia Department of Elections said the fiber cut happened near a data center operated by the Virginia Information Technology Agency off Route 10 in Chester, Virginia, south of Richmond.

The statement said technicians are “on site and working to repair the cut.”

The cut fiber was “impacting data circuits” and connectivity for the department’s online citizens portal, which allows voters to register online, as well as local registrars’ offices across Virginia.

A message on the voter registration website Tuesday morning read:

EXCLUSIVE: Theresa Greenfield, the Democrat challenging Iowa Sen. Joni Ernst for her Senate seat, has admitted to supporting the Black Lives Matter organization in a video obtained exclusively by Fox News, even though her campaign website made no mention of her thoughts toward the group.

Greenfield previously has backed the movement and activists peacefully protesting, but had kept relatively quiet about the organization, which has courted controversy in the past.

“Yeah,” Greenfield said in a video shot in Des Moines on Sept. 17 by media watchdog Accuracy in Media while shaking her head in the affirmative when asked if she supported the BLM organization.

“I don’t know if there’s any reason it doesn’t appear on the website,” she said when asked why the words “Black Lives Matter” did not appear on her campaign’s website. “Let me take a look at it, ’cause I talk about it all the time.”

After months of anticipation, Apple will finally reveal its iPhone 12 series this evening.

The tech giant is hosting an event at 18:00 BST this evening, where it’s expected to launch four new iPhones, rumoured to be called the iPhone 12 Mini, the iPhone 12, the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max.

But just hours before the launch, an eagle-eyed fan has spotted what they believe are blurry images of the iPhone 12 on Apple’s official iCloud website.

Four new icons have been added to the iCloud website, labelled iPhone13,1, iPhone13,2, iPhone13,3, and the iPhone13,4.

For reference, last year’s iPhone 11 was labelled on the iCloud website as ‘iPhone12,1’.

Twitter user @AppleSWUpdates said: “Have you ever noticed those images in the iCloud or the Apple ID website?

“Apple has uploaded 4 images for the iPhone13,1 13,2 13,3 and 13,4. No … iPhone uses those identifiers.”

Unfortunately, it remains
