A special exception from the legislature because of the covid-19 pandemic:

The Virginia Department of Elections had mail-in absentee ballot instruction sheets and envelopes printed prior to election changes enacted by the recent special session of the General Assembly. Thus, the instructions are confusing many voters. In spite of what is stated in the instructions, voters do NOT need to have a witness sign the return envelope in this election. But voters do need to insert their completed ballot into the enclosed privacy envelope and then put that envelope into the return one that is already postage-paid.

The League of Women Voters is a nationwide nonpartisan political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government at all levels. We advocate in state and local government on issues we have studied, and promote civic education. Then, the Suffragists went to jail. Now, we go to the polls!

Our Williamsburg League has been educating voters and studying issues for over 50 years.
