In-Person Early Voting for November General Election Begins Friday

In-person early voting for the November General Election begins on Friday, Sept. 17, 2021. 

The races for governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, 93rd District House of Delegates, and Commissioner of the Revenue are on the ballot. See a sample ballot at williamsburgva.gov/vote. Due to state legislation passed in 2020, voters are no longer required to have an approved reason to vote earlier than Election Day. 

City voters can cast their ballots in-person at the Municipal Building, 401 Lafayette St., either curbside or inside the Registrar’s Office between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday until Friday, Oct. 29. The office will also be open two Saturdays during this election season: Oct. 23 and 30 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. both days. Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 2, 2021.

Masks are required for anyone inside the building, including voters. Only three people are allowed inside the Registrar’s Office at a time. Those who vote curbside should park in the designated spaces and call 757-220-6157. Someone from the Registrar’s Office will come outside to check your ID and issue a ballot. 

Absentee ballots, which will be mailed to those who requested to vote by mail, can be returned to a dropbox outside the front doors of the Municipal Building or sent through the mail; postage is prepaid. Ballots sent through the mail must be postmarked by Election Day, Nov. 2, 2021, and received no later than noon Friday, Nov. 5, 2021.

To request an absentee ballot or to register to vote, contact Tina Reitzel at 757-220-6157 or treitzel@williamsburgva.gov. The last day to register is Tuesday, Oct. 12, 2021. The last day to request an absentee ballot is Friday, Oct. 22.
