2020 Election

QUESTION: What should I do if I still haven’t sent in my absentee ballot? Should I still mail it in?

ANSWER: If you requested an absentee ballot and haven’t mailed it yet, you should submit it in person. Virginia is requiring every polling location and registrar’s office to have a secure drop box, meaning voters can skip the line and hand deliver their ballot quickly until 7 p.m. Tuesday.

Election officials strongly encourage voters to deliver absentee ballots in-person at this point to make sure they’re counted. Virginia Department of Elections Commissioner Chris Piper says more than 3,000 ballots were rejected for missing the deadline in 2018.
