Mail-in Ballot Deadline Extended
Hurricane Sandy has delayed postal mail and closed the Office of Elections.
The Fairfax County Office of Elections will be closed Tuesday, so the mail-in deadline has been extended because of Hurricane Sandy. Any applications received Wednesday, Oct. 31 — or when the office reopens — will be considered received on time due to emergency situations based on Virginia Code when an officials office is closed, according to the Fairfax County Emergency Information Blog.
No mail was delivered Monday, and mail will not be delivered Tuesday, Oct. 30. The statutory deadline for mail-in was originally Tuesday, Oct. 30; this deadline still applies for applications sent by fax to 703-324-3725 or e-mail to email@example.com.
Absentee voting has been canceled for Tuesday, Oct. 30.
