The City of Alexandria is making three new locations available for early voting, according to a news release.

Residents will be able to vote in-person absentee – cast their vote prior to election day – at the Charles Beatley Library, 5005 Duke St., from Oct. 23 to 31, except Sundays, from noon to 8 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, noon to 6 p.m. on Fridays and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturdays.

Absentee voting will also be available at T.C. Williams High School’s Minnie Howard Campus, 3801 W. Braddock Road, and George Washington Middle School, 1005. Mt. Vernon Ave. Both locations will be open on Oct. 24 and Oct. 31 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., according to the release.

All three sites will have ballot drop boxes available during their open voting hours.

The deadline to submit an in-person absentee vote is Oct. 31 at 5 p.m., and all registered voters in Virginia are eligible to cast an absentee vote. Absentee voting by mail is also available as an option, but the deadline for an absentee ballot by mail is Friday.
