Unless you’ve been fortunate enough to be living under a rock these last 94 months, you know we’re in the middle of the Presidential Primaries and that the chaos is coming to our area this next Tuesday the 12th. If you’re a Virginia registered voter and interested in casting your vote but won’t be available on Tuesday you’ve got an option, at least until around 5p on Saturday.
Cast an in-person absentee ballot.
If you do so you won’t be alone; a radio report this morning said that our area was seeing about 600 people a day coming in to do just that, an increase of about ten-fold over usual. Theoretically you need a particular reason, but the list is so long that it’s hard to believe anything other than “I plan on being in the nudie bar from dawn till dusk” wouldn’t quality.
You can either look at your voter’s registration card for the section that says “Voter Registration Office” or you can go to this web link to look up your polling place. You don’t GO to your polling place, but the results will also include the accompanying Locality Electoral Board Contact Information.
