New rules about absentee ballots, a pandemic and the usual concerns about long lines are coming together to make for a big Election Day 2020.

In Hampton Roads, voters will vote in a number of local and congressional seats, as well as the presidential election. 

It's hard enough to get reliable candidate information to be an informed voter. But this year, changing rules about mail-in ballots and what to do to be safe at the polls are just a few of the things making it different than most years.

The good news is that many of the concerns pose no real threat to our elections: Voter fraud is rare, and the state received federal funding to keep polling places safe during the pandemic. 

But on top of temporary rule changes to account for the coronavirus, Virginia lawmakers recently passed a number of laws that change the voting process for some people.

It's easy to be confused, so we want to help.
