Absentee Ballot Applications Due Tuesday

August 16, 2011

Time is running out for voters in Virginia to apply for absentee ballots in this month's primary elections.

Democratic and Republican primary elections will be held Aug. 23 for a host of local and state legislative posts throughout the commonwealth.

Anyone applying for an absentee ballot must get their application to their local election board by 5 p.m. Tuesday. Ballots with an Aug. 16 postmark won't be accepted.

Those who miss the deadline to receive an absentee ballot by mail may still be able to cast an in-person absentee ballot at their county election office up until Aug. 20.

Not all northern Virginia precincts have a contested primary since many candidates are unopposed for their party's nomination.
