Absentee Voting


You can vote early at the Registrar’s Office beginning 45 days before Election Day and ending the Saturday before Election Day.  You do not have to have a reason or fill out an application to vote early.  You must provide your name and address and show an acceptable form of ID or sign an ID Confirmation Statement. 


Download the Virginia Absentee Ballot Application (PDF) and complete all requested personal information. You must sign your application. You may contact our office at 434-799-6560 to have an Absentee Ballot Application mailed to you.

Your completed Absentee Ballot Application may be returned by mail, email or fax no later than 5 pm on the eleventh day before the election. 

You may also submit an on-line Absentee Ballot Application if you have a current Virginia driver's license.

Drop off locations

If you choose not to mail your ballot, you may drop off your completed absentee ballot inside the Voter Registration Office at 530 Main Street, Suite 100, Danville, during normal office hours of 9 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday.  The Office will also be open the two Saturdays preceding each election from 9 am to 5 pm.  You may drop off your completed voted absentee ballot inside your polling place on Election Day between 6 am and 7 pm, or inside the Voter Registration Office.
