WHAT’S ON THE BALLOT?
The June 8 election is only a primary for Democratic Party candidates for the following offices:
- Lieutenant Governor
- Attorney General
- House of Delegates (34, 36, 38, 45, 49 and 86th Districts only)
There is no Republican primary in Fairfax County because the party nominated its statewide candidates through a convention held in May.
BALLOT DROP-OFF BOXES
If you are voting by mail, you may return your ballot in a drop-off box if you don’t want to mail it back.
There is a secure 24-hour drop-off box outside the Fairfax County Government Center, as well as boxes available at every early voting location during the hours these sites are open.
Ballot drop boxes also will be offered at every polling place on Election Day, Tuesday, June 8 until 7 p.m. Voters may use a box at any early voting site or polling place.
Remember that if you choose to mail your ballot back, it must be postmarked by Election Day, and it must be received by the Office of Elections by noon on Friday, June 11. Vote-by-mail ballots received after this date won’t be counted, so voters may want to consider using a ballot drop box instead.
HOW TO PROPERLY RETURN YOUR VOTE-BY-MAIL BALLOT
Whether you return your ballot in a drop box or by mail, it’s critical that you fill out all the highlighted information on “Envelope B”— with the exception of a witness signature that isn’t required. Your ballot will not be rejected if you do not have a witness signature.
Be sure to put “Envelope B” inside the prepaid, return envelope even when using a ballot drop-off box.
