LURAY, Nov. 1 — As voters head to the polls on Tuesday, about one-third of all anticipated ballots in the 2021 election have already been cast in Page County.

When early voting closed on Saturday, a total of 2,054 ballots had been cast in person since Sept. 17, according to Page County Voter Registrar Carol Gaunt, with another 531 ballots already mailed in. Absentee ballots with proper witness signatures will be accepted through the mail until the polls close on Election Day. As of Saturday, 115 requests for mail-in ballots had not been returned to the registrar’s office.

The 2,585 ballots that have already been cast represent 15.4 percent of the 16,760 registered voters in Page County. Based on previous gubernatorial election years in the county, Gaunt projected voter turnout at about 46 percent. That equates to 7,710 ballots anticipated in the Nov. 2 election — with 33.5 percent already cast.

Voters heading to the polls on Tuesday, Nov. 2, will cast their ballots at one of these five magisterial precincts between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m. after showing proper ID:
