Election information available

RICHMOND — Virginia residents needing last- minute information for voting in Tuesday’s general election can go to the State Board of Elections homepage online at www.sbe.virginia.gov for assistance.
To make information more accessible and easier to navigate, SBE is redesigning the site for Election Day on Nov. 4.
“On Election Day, time is of the essence for election officials and voters alike. Thus, every possible action is being taken to ensure the integrity, uniformity and efficiency of the Nov. 4 election,” an SBE press release states.
Voters may use the site to check their voter registration status, find polling places, view sample ballots, and file complaints.
Election results also will be available through live feed once polls close. Until the live feed begins, a countdown to Election Day 2008 will be available on the website.
To preview the redesigned page visit https://test.veris.sbe.virginia.gov/PublicSite/SBE%20Temp/default.asp
The State Board of Elections also notes that this Saturday, Nov. 1, is the last day for Virginians to vote absentee in-person at their local registrars’ office.
Those who qualify to vote absentee may fill out the absentee ballot application form, and, upon confirmation of their eligibility, may cast their ballot in their local registrar’s office.
Virginians must qualify in one of 17 categories in order to be eligible to vote absentee.

Absentee ballots sent by mail must be received by the closing of the polls on Election Day.
There is no “early voting” in Virginia.
As of Oct. 30, more than 429,000 voters had applied for their absentee ballot, and more than 312,000 had returned a voted ballot.
In the 2004 election, a total of 222,059 absentee ballots were cast.
For more information on absentee voting, contact the State Board of Elections, the local registrar, or visit the web site at www.sbe.virginia.gov .
