New Drop-off Location for Mail-in Ballots

2020 Election Button

As many as 70,000 Albemarle County voters are expected to participate in the presidential election this year. As an additional service to voters, the Albemarle County Registrar’s Office has established a new location where completed mail-in ballots can be submitted. Beginning Monday of next week, ballots can be dropped off at Albemarle High School on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings between 8:00 and 11:00 and on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons between 2:00 and 5:00.

Voters who bring their completed ballot to Albemarle High School are asked to ensure their marked ballot is inside the envelope lettered B and that this envelope is then placed inside their ballot return envelope and sealed. A tent and signage will be set up in the school’s parking lot to direct voters to the ballot box.

Voters still have the option of returning their completed mail-in ballot to the drop-box located at the County Office Building at 1600 5th Street at any time of day or night between now and 7 p.m. on election day, November 3. Or, voters can deposit their mail-in ballot on election day at any of the county’s 30 polling places, also up until 7 p.m. Do not drop off your ballot at any location other than these that have been identified.

Registered voters can request a mail-in ballot though this Friday, October 23. For more information or to track your mailed ballot, visit Albemarle County’s How to Vote web page.
