Commuting? Consider Absentee Voting
Here in Leesburg, we have many people with very long commutes to and from their jobs. It's the nature of the beast when you live in suburbia. But that does not mean you have to add stopping to vote onto your commute on November 6th. A long commute is a perfectly valid reason to vote absentee in advance of the polling on November 6th.
