    Tuesday is the last day Virginia voters can ask for an absentee ballot to be mailed to them. 

    Voters have until 5 p.m. Tuesday to request a ballot for the Nov. 7 election. 

    Virginia is one of only two states electing a new governor this year. Republican Ed Gillespie, Democrat Ralph Northam and Libertarian Cliff Hyra are vying to replace outgoing Gov. Terry McAuliffe, who cannot seek a second term. 

    Voters have until Nov. 4 to request an absentee ballot in person. To vote absentee, voters must have a valid reason and in some cases provide supporting information. 

    Absentee ballots can be requested online at www.elections.virginia.gov
