Absentee Voting Opens for Eligible City Voters on September 23

Absentee voting opens to eligible voters on Friday, September 23 for the November 8, 2011 General Election for Virginia State Senate, House of Delegates and Alexandria Clerk of Court (sample ballots are available at Many Alexandria voters are eligible to vote absentee, but relatively few take advantage of this option. There are several qualifying circumstances. For example:

  • You commute and work for 11 of the 13 hours the polls are open. (Take into account those days when traffic is heavy or the weather is bad and it takes longer than usual to get to and from work.)
  • You are a caregiver for a confined family member.
  • You are unable to go to the polls in person on Election Day because of an illness or disability.
  • You will be absent from Alexandria on Election Day because of business, work, school, or vacation.

To learn more about these, and other circumstances in which absentee voting is an appropriate option, visit and click on “Absentee Voting,” or call 703.746.4050.
