Virginians are running out of time to mail in ballots; Here’s how to make sure your vote counts

With one week to go until Election Day, state data shows nearly 350,000 voters have not returned their absentee ballots in Virginia.

Virginia Department of Elections Commissioner Chris Piper said that deadline has been pushed back to accommodate record numbers of mail-in ballots during the coronavirus pandemic. Piper said ballots still have to be postmarked by Election Day but they will be accepted until noon on Friday, November 6.
