Long lines packed with hundreds of voters were seen across Virginia Friday as in-person early voting kicked off there and in other states for the upcoming November general election.
Online videos showed masked and socially distanced Virginians lined up as far as the eye can see in the city of Fairfax to vote in the unprecedented presidential election amid the coronavirus pandemic.
A longtime poll worker in Fairfax told CNN that she never saw turnout like Friday’s on the first day of early voting.
Arlington County’s elections office tweeted that 200 people cast ballots in the first hour of the polls opening.
In previous presidential elections, Virginia voters needed a reason to cast an early ballot, but this year anyone was allowed to vote early.
