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.
