Curbside voting is available at every early voting location for people 65 or older or with a physical disability. Curbside voting doesn’t put you at the front of the line, though, and voters should expect to wait. Voters are recommended to go to the Fairfax County Government Center with 20 curbside spaces set aside.
Every citizen has the right to vote regardless of whether he or she is affected by a disability. Fairfax County is dedicated to providing accessible voting to all registered voters. If you have a disability, please review the following information and resources:
All absentee application requests to vote by absentee ballot by mail must be received no later than 5:00 p.m. on the eleventh day prior to the election.
In-person absentee voting is available in our office during office hours and during extended hours, as scheduled through 5:00 p.m. on the Saturday before the election.
Prior to June Primary Elections and November General and Special Elections especially, we offer in-person absentee voting at several locations throughout the county. Satellite voting locations depend on the size and scope of the election in question. The availability of these locations will vary election by election.
The deadline to hand deliver your voted absentee ballot for the November 2, 2021 General & Special Elections is November 2, at 7:00 p.m. Ballots can be delivered to any polling location or to the Office of Elections.
The deadline for mailed absentee ballots to be received by the Office of Elections is 12 p.m. (noon) on November 5. Ballots must be postmarked no later than November 2.
VOTING AT THE POLLS ON ELECTION DAY
All polling places are wheelchair accessible.
Curbside voting is available for those who are 65-years-old or older, or any person with a physical disability.
Accessibility problems encountered at the polling place should be reported as soon as possible to the Fairfax County Office of Elections at 703-324-4735 (TTY 711).
Every polling place is equipped with ballot marking devices (ExpressVote machines), which are designed to provide voters with disabilities the opportunity to cast their vote unassisted.
Each ballot marking device is equipped with an audio headset that enables voters with visual impairments to cast a ballot without assistance.
Each polling place has a magnifying device available for voters who may have difficulty reading the electronically scanned ballot.
Note: The availability of accessible voting equipment does not mean you must use the equipment. If you need assistance casting a ballot because of disabilities, you are entitled to request assistance. You may ask an election official to assist or bring an assistant with you. There are some restrictions on who may assist you. If you have questions, call the Office of Elections at 703-222-0776 (TTY 711).
