Deadlines are drawing closer for absentee voting in Virginia's June 11
Voters who want to vote absentee by mail must submit an application to the local registrar's office by 5 p.m. Tuesday. All absentee ballots must be turned in by 7 p.m. on Election Day. Only the voter may turn in a completed ballot in person, according to the elections website.
The last day to cast an absentee ballot in person is Saturday.
Those who wish to vote with absentee ballots must meet one of 17 eligibility requirements, according to a news release from the Virginia State Board of Elections. Identification will be requested before voting.
Though the Republican Party of Virginia chose its candidates for governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general at a convention in May, there are still primaries in both major parties.
Democratic primaries include the races for lieutenant governor, attorney general, the 90th District in the House of Delegates, Norfolk's commissioner of revenue and Portsmouth's sheriff.
Republican primaries include the 85th District in the House of Delegates and Gloucester County's Board of Supervisors at-large seat.
