It's getting to be that time again—time to cast your ballot. On June 11, there will be a Democratic primary for lieutenant governor and attorney general.
Absentee voting for the primary begins Friday. There are several qualifying circumstances to vote absentee. This information has been provided by the city of Alexandria.
Examples of cases qualifying for absentee voting:
- You commute and work for 11 of the 13 hours the polls are open. (Take into account those days when traffic is heavy or the weather is bad and the commute takes longer than usual.)
- You are a caregiver for a confined family member.
- You are unable to go to the polls in person on Election Day because of an illness or disability.
- You will be absent from Alexandria on Election Day because of personal business, work, school or vacation.
