Absentee Voting for June Primaries Begins Friday
Many Alexandria voters are eligible for absentee voting.
Absentee voting for the June 12 primaries begins Friday.
On June 12, there will be a Republican primary for U.S. Senate and a Democratic primary for U.S. House of Representatives and Alexandria City Council.
There is no party registration in Virginia, however, voters may only vote in one primary and are required to express their political party ballot choice.
Many Alexandria voters are eligible to vote absentee. Following are qualifying circumstances:
- You commute and work for 11 of the 13 hours the polls are open. The Voter Registrar's Office advises voters to take into account those days when traffic is heavy or the weather is bad and it takes longer than usual to get to and from work.
- You are a caregiver for a confined family member.
- You are unable to go to the polls in person on Election Day because of an illness or disability.
- You will be absent from Alexandria on Election Day because of personal business, work, school or vacation.
