The mudslinging and backbiting on a state level is certainly bound to heat things up at the polls soon. November 5 is Election Day and absentee voting opened Friday for anyone who cannot make it to the polls.
The Charlottesville Registrar's Office wants everyone to know that it doesn't matter where you are, your vote still counts.
"There are people all over the world who wish they had the opportunity to vote. If people are currently registered to vote and they're going to be out of town, it doesn't take any extra time. As a matter of fact, they don't have to stand in line on Election Day," said Charlottesville Registrar Sheri Iachetta.
Absentee ballots can be submitted until the Saturday before the election, November 2.
