Tough Commute?

Vote Absentee!

Don't let a long commute put your right to vote at risk. You may be eligible to vote by absentee ballot!

Virginia Law allows voters to absentee vote if they are "working and commuting to/from home for 11 or more hours between 6:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. on Election Day."

DO THE MATH!
Work Day = 8 hours
Lunch = 1 hour
Commute = 2 hours
TOTAL = 11 hours 

Is your total commute to and from work less than 2 hours some days, but more on other days?

Don't take a gamble...
VOTE ABSENTEE!
 

Don't let traffic jams, metro service disruptions, or bad weather cost you your most precious right!
For more details, call 703.746.4050.
