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.

Proposed Precinct Changes

The Alexandria Electoral Board will hold a public meeting at the Voter Registration Office (132 N Royal Street) on Wednesday, February 4, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. to receive comments on a proposal to add one new precinct and change two polling locations. The proposal would affect four precincts: Durant Center, Fire Department Headquarters, St. James Church and Chinquapin Recreation Center. 

  • The Hermitage would replace St. James as a polling location with no change to precinct boundaries.
  • Minnie Howard or T.C. Williams (pending approval from the schools) could replace Chinquapin as a polling location with no change to precinct boundaries.
  • Charles Houston Recreation Center would be added as a new precinct and polling location, carved from the center of Fire Department and Durant precincts. This map shows the proposed boundaries for the new Charles Houston precinct.

Residents who are unable to attend the February 4 meeting may submit written remarks in advance to the Voter Registration Office, attn.: Angela Maniglia Turner, Deputy Registrar of Voters, 132 North Royal Street, Suite 100, Alexandria, VA 22314, angela.turner@alexandriava.gov
