In-person absentee voting for the election on Tuesday, Nov. 8, is going on now and runs through next Saturday, Nov. 5.

Meanwhile, the deadline to request a mailed absentee ballot is fast approaching. All requests for an absentee ballot have to be submitted by 5:00 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 1. In order to be counted, the completed ballots have to be received by 7:00 p.m. on election day.

Below is the schedule for in-person absentee voting at the Arlington County Courthouse (2100 Clarendon Blvd., Suite 320):


  • Friday, Oct. 28, 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
  • Saturday, Oct. 29, 8:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
  • Monday, Oct. 31-Wednesday Nov. 2, 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
  • Thursday, Nov. 3, 8:00 a.m.-7:00 p.m.
  • Friday, Nov. 4, 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.
  • Saturday, Nov. 5, 8:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m.

    Please vote absentee if you’re eligible. Makes the lines shorter for the rest of us.

    You can vote absentee if you have specific plans to leave Arlington County for any amount of time during the election period (for example, if you work in DC or Tysons).

    • Yes, this is a great way to vote to avoid the mess and make the mess easier for everyone else.

        If eligible and you’re so inclined, vote absentee. But let’s not scare anyone away from going to their precinct polling place to vote on November 8.

        This is NOT a Presidential year. Turnout will be very light, and I don’t foresee any long lines on election day.

  • I can’t stand those road side signs.

      I concur. Please let your candidate know that 10,000 more signs will not get them 10,000 more votes.

      Plus drive down the streets today after the snow and see the numbers that have fallen over.

      Don’t forget ALL signs are illegal on VDOT ROW.
