Absentee Ballot Deadline Looming

Virginia voters are nearly out of time if they plan to mail or fax absentee ballots to vote in next week's presidential primaries.

According to the State Board of Elections, absentee ballots being mailed or faxed to the general registrar's office must be received by 5 p.m. Tuesday. Voters have until Saturday to apply in person.

Voters casting an absentee ballot must specify which party's ballot they are requesting and must list a qualifying reason for being unable to go to the polls on election day.

Once cast, an absentee ballot is final, even if a candidate withdraws before the primary date.

To be counted, absentee ballots must be received by the time the polls close at 7 p.m. February 12 for the Democratic and Republican primaries.
