RICHMOND (WRIC) — The Virginia Department of Elections wants to make sure all Virginia voters know they have access to absentee and early voting.
The Virginia General Assembly passed new legislation that went into effect July 1, that allows Virginia voters to vote absentee without an excuse– making it easier to vote before election day.
The Virginia Department of Elections announced “Free to Be Absentee”, their new awareness campaign designed to educate voters about absentee and early voting to avoid the spread of COVID-19.
Any registered voter may request an absentee ballot or go vote early in person. Absentee ballots will begin being mailed out on September 18th, the same day early voting begins in all localities throughout the Commonwealth.
Voters with questions about absentee, mail-in and in-person voting or any aspect of the November 3, 2020 election should visit the Virginia Department of Elections website here.
