RICHMOND – Absentee voting for the November 7 General Election is successfully underway in the commonwealth. Qualified Virginia voters may now vote absentee in-person at their local voter registration office or vote absentee by mail. To vote absentee, registered voters must meet one of the 20 eligibility requirements listed on the Virginia Absentee Ballot Application.
Voters who want to vote an absentee ballot by mail must apply before 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 31. If you need to request a ballot by mail, the Department of Elections advises applying as early as possible. Absentee ballots by mail must be returned by 7 p.m. on Election Day.
In-person absentee voting is available at local voter registration offices Monday through Friday during regular office hours and on Saturday, Oct. 28 and Saturday, Nov. 4. Office hours and locations for in-person absentee voting may vary by locality and are available at vote.virginia.gov.
