ABSENTEE VOTING INFORMATIONYou must first obtain an application for a Primary Ballot!  You can do this by calling your local Registrar’s office.  Phone Numbers for area registrars:

City of Charlottesville– 434 970 3250
Albemarle County – 434 972 4173
Fluvanna County – 434 589 3593

An application will be sent to you in the mail. Upon sending back the application to your local registrar’s office, you will receive a ballot–for the June 23 Primaries, you will state on your application whether you would prefer a Democratic or Republican ballot.  June 16 is the deadline to apply for an Absentee Ballot.

Or, voters may submit an absentee ballot application online by going directly to the Department of Elections website:  www.elections.virginia.gov (or call 804 864-8901 or 800 552-9745, 8 am to 5 pm weekdays). Due to COVID-19, it is strongly recommended that voters request a mailed absentee ballot using reason code 2A, “My disability or illness,” on the application. Registrars will also accept applications via regular mail and email:  see links above to contact your local Registrar to request a Primary Ballot Application. 

Please note that your ballot no longer needs to be observed and signed by a witness. As you may know, the ACLU, representing LWV-VA and individuals for whom the witness signature requirement presents a barrier to voting, has successfully asked for waiver of the witness signature during the COVID-19 crisis. We want everyone to be able to exercise their right to vote safely.
