To the Fairfax County Community,
On Saturday, we had almost 11,000 people cast a ballot at our 15 early voting sites. This is the highest number of early votes cast in a single day in Fairfax County ever! The turnout for this election is truly incredible. It also requires our patience as we continue to support each other's health and the health of our hardworking election officials.
I want to remind voters of a few Election facts:
- Applications for an absentee/mail-in ballot must be received by the Office of Elections no later than 5 pm on Oct. 23. Learn how to apply here or apply online here.
- There are 15 locations to vote early in-person - be sure to check the times before you go.
- You may deliver a mail-in ballot by mail or at a ballot drop box. Ballot drop boxes are located at all early voting locations, only during the hours the polls are open. The exception to this is the 24-hr drop box at the Fairfax County Government Center. Finally, drop boxes will also be available at every precinct on Election Day. You do not need to wait in line to drop off a ballot.
The Election is two weeks away, be sure to take advantage of the many opportunities to vote early.
In addition, today, we had a Board meeting, which is the subject of the rest of this newsletter.
The full agenda is available for your review here.
