Registrars in the Valley are seeing record numbers of absentee ballots, far surpassing past elections.

Absentee voting has ended for this election year, and the numbers are in.

In Harrisonburg, more than 900 people have voted absentee. In the past, numbers weren't even close to this year's. There were less than 80 absentee voters for the 2004 election.

In Rockingham county, more than 2,400 residents voted absentee this year. In 2004, a little more than 1,500 people voted absentee.

In the 2000 elections, no more than 300 people turned in absentee ballots.
