Your Local Election HQ

(WFXR) — Tuesday marks the final day for Virginia voters to submit their ballots for the November General Election, whether that is in-person or through the mail.

According to the Virginia Department of Elections, polling places are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Election Day, which is Tuesday, Nov. 2. However, anyone in line at 7 p.m. will still be allowed to vote.

When you arrive at the polls, voters will need to provide either an acceptable form of identification or sign an ID Confirmation Statement to affirm your identity. If you do not sign the statement, you may vote with a provisional ballot.

Meanwhile, if you are mailing in your ballot, it needs to be postmarked no later than 7 p.m. Tuesday and received by the local registrar’s office by noon on Friday, Nov. 5, according to the department.

Multiple bus services in southwest and central Virginia — including Valley Metro, Greater Lynchburg Transit Company, and Blacksburg Transit — will be offering free fare service for a number of routes in order to help voters get to polling locations.
