Absentee Voting Opens for Eligible Alexandria Voters Begins September 19

absentIVotedStickerAbsentee voting for the November 4, federal election begins on Friday, September 19. Many Alexandria voters are eligible to vote absentee, for example, if they are:

  • Away for personal business, work, vacation, active military service or at school.
  • Working and commuting for 11 or more hours between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m. on Election Day. Take into account those days when traffic is heavy or the weather is bad and it takes longer than usual to get to and from work.
  • Physically unable to go to the polls because of an illness or disability.
  • A caregiver for a confined family member.
  • A “first responder” (firefighter, law enforcement, emergency medical technician, search and rescue).

To learn more about these, and other circumstances in which absentee voting is an appropriate option, go to alexandriava.gov/Elections and click on “Absentee Voting,” or call 703.746.4050.
