Early in-person voting is up in Alexandria over recent non-presidential election years, according to Alexandria Registrar Angie Maniglia-Turner. As of 3:10 p.m. on Saturday, 7,943 city residents had cast in-person ballots in the Virginia general election.
According to Turner, 6,914 residents had cast early in-person ballots as of 5 p.m. on Oct. 22. Voting at both the Old Town and Beatley Library locations was brisk on Saturday, as another 1,029 Alexandrians had cast ballots as of mid-afternoon.
Turner said an additional 11,676 ballots had been mailed to people who requested to vote absentee by mail. There was no data available on how many of those ballots have been returned.
Statewide candidates for governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general, along with all seats in the Virginia House of Delegates are on the ballot, along with Alexandria’s local election, including candidates for mayor, City Council, School Board, commonwealth’s attorney and sheriff.
