The city of Richmond will open two satellite early voting locations on Saturday in addition to the one inside the General Registrar’s Office on West Laburnum Avenue. 

Richmond's General Registrar J. Kirk Showalter told VPM on Friday that she expects more than 27,000 early voters will have cast their ballots in person by the end of the day. 

Starting on Saturday, in-person, early voting will also take place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Richmond City Hall (900 E Broad St.) and the Hickory Hill Community Center (3000 East Belt Blvd.). Richmond residents can cast their ballot at any of the three locations, regardless of which precinct they live in.

Early voting in Virginia is available through October 31st, the Saturday before Election Day.

Anyone who already requested a mail-in ballot must bring it with them to the polls, otherwise they’ll have to fill out a provisional ballot.
