RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) - Early voting for the June 20 primary election gets underway on Friday, May 5.
The Department of Elections says that of 133 cities and counties in Virginia, 66 of them will hold a primary election for at least one office.
“To vote early in-person, registered voters should go to the general registrar’s office for the jurisdiction in which they are registered, present their ID, and cast a ballot,” the Department of Elections said in a news release.
Some areas may offer in-person voting at satellite locations.
Be sure to contact your general registrar’s office regarding voting hours and additional voting locations.
Requested absentee ballots will be mailed starting May 5. Any registered voter can request an absentee ballot either in-person, by mail, online or by contacting your general registrar’s office.
