Voting in Albemarle County

Cast your Vote Early In-Person through Saturday, October 31st

With just one week until Election Day, Albemarle County voters are encouraged to explore the option of voting early in-person. Voters interested in this option have until 5 pm on Saturday, October 31st to cast an early in-person vote.

Residents can vote early in-person at the County Office Building at 1600 5th Street Conference Room A at the following times:

  • Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 8:30 am to 5 pm
  • Tuesdays from 7 am to 5 pm
  • Thursdays from 8:30 am to 7 pm
  • Saturday, October 31 from 9 am to 5 pm

This experience is very similar to voting in person on Election Day – you’ll be checked in using the electronic pollbooks, given a ballot and sent to mark it, and then you’ll feed your marked ballot into a scanner which will count your vote. Usually, the entire process takes around 10 minutes.

Anyone voting in-person at any time should remember to wear a face covering and to keep six feet of distance from other voters. Enhanced cleaning protocols are in place to keep you and others safe while casting your vote.

If you haven’t already, make a plan to vote!


Book a Free Ride to the Polls with Jaunt

Jaunt has temporarily expanded its service in urban Albemarle County to provide rides to the polls, fare-free. You can reserve a ride to the polls, either on Election Day or to vote early, by calling 434-297-2627 or by emailing trips@ridejaunt.org. Due to COVID-19, Jaunt buses are operating at reduced capacity, drivers and passengers are required to wear cloth face coverings, and vehicles are cleaned and disinfected daily.


Drop your Mail Ballot Off at 5th Street or the New Location at Albemarle High School

This week, the Albemarle County Registrar’s office is operating a mail ballot drop box at the Albemarle High School Parking Lot on Hydraulic Road in addition to the drop box located at the County Office Building on 5th Street. Albemarle County voters may drop their completed mail ballots at either location during the specified dates and times below.

This additional location will operate during the last week before the election (October 26 – October 30) only and will be staffed by three Albemarle County Election Officers who will then bring the dropped-off ballots to the Registrar’s Office to be counted.

Mail-In Ballot Drop Box at Albemarle High School

  • Monday (10/26), Wednesday (10/28) and Friday (10/30), 8 am– 11 am
  • Tuesday (10/27) & Thursday (10/29), 2 pm – 5 pm

Mail-In Ballot Drop Box at County Office Building on 5th Street

  • 24 hours per day, 7 days per week through Election Day – November 3 – at 7 pm

Important Reminders:

  • We will only accept ballots from Albemarle County voters.
  • Make certain that your marked ballot is placed in envelope B and envelope B is inserted in your Ballot return envelope before dropping it in the box.
  • This location will be open ONLY at the times and days listed above. If these times are not convenient, you can use the drop-box at the County Office Building at 1600 5th Street, which is available 24 hours a day and every day of the week until 7 pm on Election Day, November 3rd. These are the only drop-off locations authorized before Election Day. Do not leave your mail-in ballot envelope at any other location, at any other time or place.
  • On Election Day, all 30 polling places in the county will also have a Mail-In Ballot Box for your Mail-In Ballot envelope until 7 pm on November 3rd, 2020. Voters may drop off their Mail-In Ballots at any county polling place location on Election Day.
