NORFOLK, Va. — The Norfolk Office of Elections encouraged residents Monday to participate in the city's upcoming election from home.
The city said anyone can request an absentee ballot by April 13 by filling out their paper or online form and selecting "disability or illness" under "choose an absentee ballot reason."
People can request an absentee ballot by mail up through April 28 at 5 p.m.
The May 5 election will help select the city's mayor, city council and school board.
The office of elections said that even though Norfolk public buildings are closed, they are offering limited curbside services during regular office hours.
To use their services, people are asked to park in Norfolk's Main Street Circle, next to the City Hall Building, and call 757.664.4353 for assistance.
