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

On Tuesday, November 3 there will be a General Election in Alexandria for State Senate, House of Delegates, Mayor, City Council and School Board.
Proposed Precinct Changes
The Alexandria Electoral Board will make the following recommendations to City Council at the March 10 Council Meeting:
- Replace St. James Church (5000 Echols Avenue) with the Hermitage (5000 Fairbanks Avenue) as a polling location with no change to precinct boundaries.
- Add Charles Houston Recreation Center (901 Wythe Street) as a new precinct and polling location, carved from Fire Department (900 Second Street) and Durant Center (1605 Cameron Street). This map shows the proposed boundaries for the new Charles Houston precinct.
- Continue to explore replacement polling locations for Chinquapin with no change to precinct boundaries.
- Continue to monitor development in the West End and Potomac Yards to ensure precincts in those areas remain manageable.
