RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Saturday is the final day to vote absentee in person in Virginia.

The Virginia Department of Elections had received about 95,000 absentee votes as of Friday morning.

Department spokeswoman Rose Mansfield said the department mailed out about 113,000 absentee ballots to voters who requested them.

The deadline for voters to mail in their absentee ballots was Oct. 28.

Virginia allows voters to cast ballots absentee only if they meet at least one of the 19 different qualifying reasons, such as traveling for business on Election Day or being incarcerated while awaiting trial.

Voters wishing to vote absentee can do so at their local general registrar’s office, whose hours vary.
