Va. Absentee Ballot Application Deadline Today

Play associated audio

Today is the deadline for voters in Virginia to apply for absentee ballots for next week's primary elections.

The Democratic and Republican primaries for contested races in the commonwealth are set for next Tuesday. But anyone who wants to mail in an absentee ballot needs to get the application form to their local election office by 5 p.m. today.

Applications postmarked today but received later won't be accepted. They need to be delivered in person or by fax.

Once completed, the ballots must be returned to the election board by 7 p.m. on election day.

This isn't the last chance to vote absentee, though. Those who miss the application deadline can still apply and cast an in-person absentee vote at their county election office through this Saturday, Aug. 20.
