GETTING STARTED

Due to the ongoing and rapidly evolving COVID-19 crisis, voters should take the time to confirm they are registered to vote.  In order to avoid issues demonstrated in Wisconsin's primary election, voters should request absentee ballots as soon as possible to ensure they can maintain personal safety while minimizing the risk of spreading the virus further.  The more lead time local governments have to process these requests, the more likely the request will be processed in time for the election.  

Resources that allow you to check your status and sign up as needed are described below.  Depending on what you need, the process can take 2 - 10 minutes.

ACLU

Voters who are concerned they may not meet the absentee ballot requirements should reach out to the ACLU for guidance and support.  The current "Virginia witness requirement" has already been flagged by the ACLU as it create additional burdens on individuals who may be self-isolating alone.  UPDATE: FEDERAL COURT APPROVES PARTIAL SETTLEMENT IN ACLU VOTING LAWSUIT CHALLENGING VIRGINIA’S WITNESS REQUIREMENT DURING COVID-19 PANDEMIC (May 5, 2020)
