40. VA: Improving Absentee Voting
Following the Nov. 4 election, the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors has asked the electoral board to review the in-person absentee voting procedures and report back with potential improvements to the system.

"Voting on election day went smooth as silk but absentee voting was another story," said Supervisor Sharon Bulova (D-Braddock) at a meeting Nov. 17.

Supervisors Jeff McKay (D-Lee), Patrick Herrity (R-Springfield) and Penny Gross (D-Mason) all said there were problems with the people voting absentee at the county nine district government centers, where the supervisors offices are also located.

According the supervisors, some voters had to wait between two and three hours to cast a ballot, partially because election officials were required to call the county registrar office and verify that each voter was registered and had not already voted.
