Early voting ends Saturday October 31.  If you requested an absentee ballot and have not yet mailed it in, please consider dropping your completed ballot – in its envelopes – in the drop box outside of the Aurora Hills community center, 18th & Hayes.  Ballots are retrieved by County election officials every day, this drop box has a security camera, and you may drop in your completed ballot/envelopes 24/7 through 7 P.M. on Election Day, November 3.  All precincts will have an inside drop box available on November 3rd. 

If you want to vote in person – whether you requested an absentee ballot or not – come on in!  If you received an absentee ballot please bring it with you. If you plan to vote in person on Election Day, November 3, you will need to vote in your own precinct – either Crystal City 006 (251 S. 18th Street, the red Wells Fargo Bank building) or Crystal Plaza 050 (inside the Crystal Plaza apartment building.  Polls are open 6 am to 7  pm.

Know WHAT to bring:  A mask (please protect your fellow voters and volunteers and yourself) and a valid ID.  Note:  Note that Virginia law has changed, again, and many types of IDs that were not acceptable in recent elections are again acceptable.  (Examples:  your voter registration card, a utility bill with your current name and address, or any current photo ID from an American college or university.)  However, out-of-state drivers’ licenses are still NOT acceptable.  But any registered voter who does not possess an acceptable form of ID may vote by signing an ID Confirmation Statement.  See Voter ID Requirements for what is acceptable.  If you received an absentee ballot, please bring it with you – with all of its envelopes (unopened is fine).
