Today is last chance for absentee voting
Local registrars are extending their hours today—the last day for absentee voting in person for Tuesday’s elections.
The registrars of King George County, Stafford County and Fredericksburg are open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and the Spotsylvania County registrar is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
The Spotsylvania County registrar had seen more than 1,400 absentee voters by Friday, according to Registrar Kellie Acors.
“We’re a little busier compared to the 2009 election,” said Acors. “We’ll definitely be busy. Saturday is our busiest day.”
