Early Voting Has Started in Fairfax County

The following article excerpt is from our content sharing partner, FairfaxNews.com.

Election Day is still more than six weeks away, but if you want to vote right now, many of you can do that.

In-person absentee voting started Monday at the county’s Government Center in Fairfax. On October 13 it will expand to nine additional locations. You can also vote by mail right now.

Voting by absentee ballot could save you lots of time because there are lots of registered voters in Fairfax County – almost 700,000. And turnout is elected to be heavy on Election Day.
