"Rather than having to actually cursively sign that ballot application, because the DMV has your cursive handwritten signature digitized, you know you can see it on your driver’s license. That will be the signature that's on the application. So it's a completely online application process," said Albemarle Co. Voter Registrar Jake Washburne.
Charlottesville has currently received only one online application from an absentee voter.
Those interested in casting an absentee ballot can vote by mail by October 27, or in person by October 31.
