PLEASE NOTE: It is not necessary to file an absentee ballot application to vote early at the Registrar’s Office. Absentee ballot applications are only required when the voter wishes to vote BY MAIL rather than in person at the office or in the precinct.  

If you request an absentee ballot and later decide to vote in person either early in the Registrar’s Office or on election day in your assigned precinct, please BRING THE ABSENTEE BALLOT YOU RECEIVED WITH YOU. If you do not produce the issued absentee ballot at early voting, you must either swear a state provided affirmation under penalty of law or vote a provisional ballot. If you do not produce the issued absentee ballot on election day, you may only vote a provisional ballot.

The City of Lynchburg uses Unisyn Voting equipment.  All voting equipment must undergo rigorous testing and certification by the State Board of Elections.  All ballots in Lynchburg are marked on paper, including the one touch-screen voting device offered to voters with disabilities who could have trouble filling in the circles on a paper ballot with ink; the touch-screen devices print a paper ballot on which the voter can confirm that his or her vote was properly recorded. All paper ballots are fed into a scanning machine for counting, and the machine keeps an electronic image of every ballot scanned. The scanned vote totals are reviewed and confirmed one by one for each voting precinct by the Electoral Board the day after each election in a "canvass." 
All absentee ballots submitted by mail or brought to the registrar’s office before and during Election Day are required to be submitted in supplied envelope which includes the voter’s signature.  
The electronic vote totals and the images are downloaded onto thumb drives at the close of federal elections. All paper ballots from all elections and thumb drives are kept by the circuit court clerk's office for two years after federal elections so that they can be examined and counted in the case of a recount or other need.  

Virginia Election Code
