In person absentee voting begins in the Registrar’s office (City Hall Annex, 120 7th Street NE, Room 142 Charlottesville, VA 22902) on Friday, April 26 for City of Charlottesville-registered voters. An acceptable voter photo ID and an absentee reason are required. If you do not have a photo ID for voting, we can make one for you here. Curbside voting is available at our office for City voters who are disabled, or who are age 65 or older and have a qualifying absentee reason. (Age alone is not a reason to vote absentee in Virginia.) If you have any questions, please us at 434-970-3250.
If you need an absentee ballot mailed to you, apply now at http://vote.virginia.gov. An absentee voting reason is required. Ballots will be mailed beginning no later than April 26. Mailed ballots must be returned to the office by mail or by the voter personally by 7:00 PM on election day, June 11, or they cannot be counted. Allow plenty of time to receive, vote and return your ballot. The deadline to apply for a mailed ballot is 5:00 PM on Tuesday, June 4, but voters waiting that late may not have time to complete the process. If you have any questions, please call our office at 434-970-3250. For more information see our Absentee Voting page.
