Deadline to request absentee ballot in Virginia
Oct. 31, 2017
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Tuesday is the last day Virginia voters can ask for an absentee ballot to be mailed to them.
Voters have until 5 p.m. Tuesday to request a ballot for the Nov. 7 election.
Virginia is one of only two states electing a new governor this year. Republican Ed Gillespie, Democrat Ralph Northam and Libertarian Cliff Hyra are vying to replace outgoing Gov. Terry McAuliffe, who cannot seek a second term.
Voters have until Nov. 4 to request an absentee ballot in person. To vote absentee, voters must have a valid reason and in some cases provide supporting information.
Absentee ballots can be requested online at www.elections.virginia.gov
