The Center for Voter Information recently mailed absentee ballot applications with pre-paid return envelopes to Virginia residents. The Virginia Department of Elections has no affiliation with this group nor coordinates with any third party groups on campaign efforts. Some of these return envelopes are addressed to the incorrect registrar’s office. The Virginia Department of Elections encourages all voters that would like to receive an absentee ballot for the November election to apply electronically on their website at www.Elections.Virginia.gov/VoterInformation. If you have already applied for an absentee ballot, you do not need to submit a new application.
