“Super Tuesday” is in March — but Fairfax County is reminding voters about absentee voting and seeking election officers now.
Absentee voting for the 2020 presidential primary starts later this week on Friday, Jan. 17.
The deadline to register to vote in the March 3 primary is Feb. 10. People can check their voter eligibility on the Virginia State Board of Elections website.
Last week, the county announced that it needs 2,100 election officers for the primary.
The Office of Elections especially is looking for bilingual officers who speak Korean or Vietnamese for the Falls Church area, along with Annadel and Centreville, according to the county.
Election officers help set up voting equipment, check photo IDs and tabulate poll results. Compensation starts at $175 or people can choose to volunteer their time.
