Click to see a Sample Ballot

For ONLY Town Voters - COVID-19

The Hanover County Voter Registration and Elections Office is concerned about reducing the need for vulnerable citizens to be out in public during this unusual health situation. To this end, all Town of Ashland voters are strongly encouraged to request an absentee ballot by mail and “Vote at Home.”

Absentee applications can be completed at www.vote.virginia.gov or request an application by calling our office. To complete the process online, the voter must provide their DMV ID (driver’s license) AND social security number. To begin: select “Casting a Ballot” from the top menu. Provide the information to log in. On the next page, select “I want to apply for absentee voting.” Follow the prompts. The voter will be asked to select from a list of reasons for requesting a ballot. For example, if the voter is ill or avoiding illness, they will select, “My disability or illness.” If the voter chooses to download and use a paper form, the same reason is code 2A. A paper form must be signed and mailed to:
P.O. Box 419
Hanover VA 23069
or emailed to hanovervoting@hanovercounty.gov

PLEASE NOTE: Ballots are mailed within one business day after receipt of a completed application. The final day to apply for a ballot by mail is Tuesday, April 28. Current postal standards are 3-5 days for mail delivery. Ballots can be hand delivered to the Office of Elections but only by the voter and with photo ID. Ballots must be received by 7 p.m. on May 5. The Office of Elections encourages voters not to wait until the last minute.
