Virginia Department of Elections launches absentee voting campaign
The Virginia Department of Elections announced “Free to Be Absentee”, a new awareness campaign designed to educate voters about absentee and early voting to avoid the spread of COVID-19.
The campaign features a series of digital ads and social media content that highlight a creative focus on the absentee and early voting processes.
Virginia voters no longer need an excuse to vote absentee. Any registered voter may request an absentee ballot or go vote early in person. Absentee ballots will be mailed out beginning Sept. 18, the same day early voting begins in all localities throughout the state.
Voters with questions about absentee, mail-in and in-person voting or any aspect of the Nov. 3, 2020 election may call the Virginia Department of Elections at 800-552-9745, email the department at email@example.com, or visit elections.virginia.gov/absentee.
