RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - There's one week left to apply for a mail-in absentee ballot for Virginia's republican presidential primary on March 6th.

The State Board of Elections says applications for mail-in absentee ballots must be submitted by 5 p.m. next Tuesday.

Applications can be submitted to the voter's local registrar's office in-person, by mail, fax, or scanned email attachment. March 3rd is the deadline for voters to apply in-person.

Only two candidates - Mitt Romney and Ron Paul - qualified to appear on the Virginia ballot.
