Absentee Voting Open In VA For Nov. Election

Posted: Updated:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Absentee voting has started for the Nov. 5 general election in all of Virginia's 133 localities.
    
The State Board of Elections says all of Virginia's localities have met the deadlines to send absentee ballots to overseas and military voters within 45 days of the general election.
    
To vote absentee, voters must meet one of 17 eligibility requirements. These requirements include any person who will be absent from the county or city where he or she votes because of a vacation, personal business or work-related reasons, and anyone who is unable to go to the polls on the day of the election because of a disability, illness or pregnancy.
    
Eligible voters may cast their absentee ballot by mail or in-person at their local registrar's office.
