The Office of Voter Registration and Elections is now open during regular business hours for absentee in-person voting. The last day to vote absentee in-person for the June 23, 2020 Primary is Saturday, June 20.
For the upcoming June Primary, most voters may submit an absentee ballot application online at the Department of Elections website. Due to COVID-19, it is strongly recommended that voters request a mailed absentee ballot using reason code 2A on the application. We will also accept applications via regular mail, email and fax (434) 970-3249. For primary elections, please state on your application whether you would prefer a Democratic or Republican ballot. If you have any questions or would like to request a paper absentee ballot application, please contact us at (434) 970-3250.
Voters can check the status of their absentee ballot application using the online Citizen Portal or by calling our office. Once a ballot has been issued, its progress through the mail can be tracked using Ballot Scout on our Absentee Voting page.
The deadline to register to vote or update your registration for the June 23, 2020 Primary is May 26. Most voters can complete the registration process online using the Citizen Portal. Please contact our office if you would like to request a paper voter registration application.
