Voter Information

The Constitution of Virginia requires residents be registered in the precinct in which they live in order to be qualified to vote. Registration closes 21 days before a primary or general election. (See the Election Calendar for registration deadlines.)

A valid photo identification is required in order to cast a ballot at the polling place on Election Day and for in-person absentee voting. Acceptable forms of identification include: 

• Valid Virginia driver’s license
• DMV-issued photo identification card
• Valid United States passport
• Valid employee photo identification card
• Other government-issued photo identification card
• Valid college or university student photo identification card from an institution of higher education located in Virginia

Photo ID Flyer

Individuals who do not have an acceptable form of identification should contact their local voter registration office for a free photo I.D.

Voters without acceptable identification will be required to vote using a provisional ballot and submit a copy of a valid form of I.D. to the local Electoral Board by noon on the Friday following Election Day in order for their ballots to be counted.
