Virginia's In-Person Absentee Primary Voting Deadline Is Tomorrow

Play associated audio

The deadline is approaching for voters in Virginia who want to cast in-person absentee ballots for Tuesday's primary elections.

Election offices in Northern Virginia will be open today and tomorrow for people who want to vote in the Aug. 23 primaries but can't cast their ballot on Election Day.

After that, only those who have already requested absentee ballots by mail will be able to vote absentee.

Democrats and Republicans are holding primaries Tuesday for a variety of local and state legislative posts. Absentee voting could play an especially significant role because so many people are on vacation in August and turnout is expected to be low.

Virginia's primaries are typically held in June, but they had to be pushed back this year after a fight over redistricting stretched out for several months.
