Absentee by-mail ballot No excuse is needed to vote absentee. However, unlike in 2020, a witness signature on your completed ballot is now required. In order to vote absentee by-mail, you will first need to complete an absentee ballot application. You can request an absentee ballot:

  • Online, by October 22
  • By submitting an application by mail or in person (must be received by the Registrar by October 22, 5:00PM)

There are some exceptions to the deadline for emergencies.

After you receive and complete your by-mail ballot, you can return it:

  • By Mail. Must be postmarked on or before Election Day and received by noon on Friday November 5.
  • In Person. Must be received by 7PM on Election Day.
  • At a Ballot drop box. Ballot drop boxes are available on Election Day at each polling site.

Montgomery County has Ballot drop boxes at the same locations (and times) as the early in-person voting locations, plus another at the Government Center’s lobby available during normal business hours. You must use the sealed envelope that was provided with your ballot.

If you registered to vote by mail, are voting absentee by-mail, and have never voted in a federal election, you may have to provide a copy of an ID with your by-mail ballot. Your ballot will contain a notice if this applies to you.

Where do I vote on Election Day?

Use the Department of Election’s Polling Place Lookup to find your voting location.

Voters will be asked to show one form of ID. If the voter does not have an acceptable ID, the voter may sign an ID Confirmation Statement and vote normally. If the voter does not have an acceptable ID and refuses to sign an ID Confirmation Statement, the voter must vote a provisional ballot.

Why are the Parties listed in that order?

The order is decided by random drawing, with the two major parties listed before the other recognized parties; start reading at line 173 of the State Board of Elections Minutes for details of this year's process. Virginia Code §24.2-613.B provides that political party identification be shown on the ballot ONLY for federal, statewide and General Assembly candidates. It does not appear on the ballot for any other candidate.

Searchable Voter Information Database

The most comprehensive source for an individual's voting information is found in the Virginia State Board of Elections' searchable database. If you are a registered voter, you can enter your information into this form and find your registration status, the Districts in which you reside, your polling location, what's on your ballot, and your Voter Registrar's contact information.

What are Districts?

Each voter is in several different districts:

Federal Elections
Federal Congressional District, for US House of Representatives elections. All of Montgomery and Floyd Counties are in the Virginia's 9th Congressional district. There are no "districts" for the US Senate; everyone in the state votes on the same race.

State Elections
State Senate: Floyd is in the Virginia 19th Senate District. Montgomery County residents are in either the 19th, 21st, or 38th District.
House of Delegates: Floyd is in the Virginia 7th House of Delegates District. Montgomery County residents are in the 7th, 8th or 12th District.

County / Local Elections
Counties are also divided into districts which are the basis for certain races, such as School Board Members or Board of Supervisor elections. Town residents vote for County and Town races when they occur.

What Districts am I in?

Your registered voter information will show your state and local districts.
