This November 3rd, we will elect the people that make up the Virginia legislature. There are many important issues facing the Commonwealth. Being an “off year election,” voter turn out is often low. Please take the time to vote in this important election.
Today is the start of absentee voting in our Commonwealth. Absentee voting is available in person or via mail between now and October 31st, or via mail.
With changes to the law, many people are eligible for in-person absentee voting. Reasons for voting absentee include, being out of town on November 3rd for vacation or work, having a spouse or dependent who is in the active service, working 11 hours or more outside of the county you vote in, and many other reasons.
The locations for in-person absentee voting can be found at the following websites:
Alexandria Voting Locations
Falls Church Voting Locations
Fairfax Voting Locations
Voting absentee by mail requires filling out an application and return it to your local country registrar, more information can be found here.
When you vote in person, remember to bring a proper photo ID. Learn more about ID requirements by visiting the Virginia State Board of Elections website.
It has been my privilege to represent you at the Capital. I ask for your vote again. Thanks for your consideration.
