I've heard about in-person absentee voting. How does that work?
In-person absentee voting works similar to mail-in voting except you actually vote on a voting machine. You will be asked to complete an absentee ballot application, just as if you were having the ballot mailed to you. In-person absentee voters are also required to show appropriate identification, which includes your valid voter registration card or Virginia driver's license. The office staff will verify your voter registration record then direct you to a voting machine where you will vote a ballot exactly like the one in your polling place on Election Day. In-person absentee voting ends at 4:30 p.m. on the Saturday before the election.
