Voting on Election Day

Polls are open today, November 3, 2020, from 6am to 7pm.

We don’t know if there will be long lines on Election Day this year, so come prepared to wait in lines that may be longer due to social distancing.

You can deliver your completed absentee ballot at a drop box inside any polling location on Election Day. An Election Officer will be protecting the drop box at all times. There is one 24-hour drop box available outside the Fairfax County Government Center and will be available until 7pm on Election Day.

Curbside voting is available on Election Day for those 65 and older or those with a physical disability  to vote from their vehicle.
