ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — Gov. Ralph Northam’s stay-at-home order is in effect until June 10, which could impact elections across Virginia in May and June.
Northam encourages everyone to vote absentee during the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent stay at home order, but do you know how to apply for your absentee ballot?
You will need to list a reason for voting absentee. The VDE and Northam say voters may use option 2A, “My disability or illness.”
You will need your driver’s license number and Social Security number to complete your application for an absentee ballot.
May’s elections are for local municipal races. Democratic and Republican primaries are set for June and the general election is set for November. Voters may vote absentee in all three elections, but must submit separate applications to obtain a ballot for each race.
