James City County

Important Information:

In-person absentee/early voting for James City County registered voters will take place at the James City County Vote Center located at James City County Recreation Center, 5301 Longhill Road.

An ID is required and voters do not have to have an application in advance for this method.

The last day to vote by absentee ballot in person at the James City County Vote Center is Saturday, Oct. 30.

The office will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Those who change their minds and choose to vote in-person after having been been mailed a ballot are allowed to, but the process will take additional time. The ballot they will be given will be the the same ballot they would have received in the mail.

Voters who change their minds about voting by mail can either surrender their blank, unopened ballot to the Precinct Chief to receive a new, in-person ballot, or receive a Provisional Ballot if they do not have their ballot.

Provisional ballots will then be reviewed and counted by the Electoral Board after noon on Friday, Nov. 5.
