  • Who is this absentee request tool created by?
    • This page was created and is managed by the Virginia 7th Congressional District Republican Committee
  • Once I have submitted my absentee request form, where does it get sent?
    • Your absentee request form will be sent directly to your local county registrar for processing. You will also receive a copy of your absentee request form in the email account you provided.
  • Why is it better to submit my absentee request here at opposed to the Virginia Department of Elections website?
    • The Virginia Department of Elections allows the 7th District Committee to accept absentee request forms through this website quickly and efficiently. Your Electronic Signature ensures the legality and safety of this process. 
  • Why do I have to provide the last four digits of my Social Security Number?
    • The Virginia Department of Elections requires you to provide your last four digits of your Social Security Number to maintain the integrity of the electoral process. This is done to check that all ballot requests come from registered voters. No part of your Social Security Number is shared with anyone else.
  • Why should I vote early as opposed to voting on Election Day?
    • Voting early helps the Republican Party and its ticket win elections. By voting early, your name will be checked off of campaign calling and mailing lists. This enables the Republican Party to divert resources that would otherwise be spent ensuring you come out to vote on election day, to instead target swing voters. In a close race, that could make the difference between victory or defeat for President Trump, Senate nominee Daniel Gade, and 7th District Congressional candidate Nick Freitas.
