When voting at the polling place on election day or voting in-person absentee at the Registrar’s Office, you will need to provide an acceptable form of identification in order to vote.  Additional information about voter identification requirements is available on the Virginia Department of Elections website.

Acceptable Forms of Voter Identification:

  • Valid Virginia Driver’s License or Identification Card;
  • Valid Virginia DMV issued Veteran’s ID card;
  • Valid United States of America Passport;
  • Other government-issued identification cards (must be issued by U.S. Government, the Commonwealth of Virginia, or a political subdivision of the Commonwealth);
  • Valid student identification card;
  • Valid employee identification card containing a photograph of the voter and issued by an employer of the voter in the ordinary course of the employer’s business;
  • Current Voter Information Notice issued by the General Registrar; or
  • A copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other government document containing the name and address of the voter.

Voters requesting to vote an absentee ballot by mail can find information on the Virginia Department of Elections website about what identification requirements they must satisfy, if any.

Voters who do not have one of the acceptable forms of identification when voting must complete a statement affirming identity or cast a provisional ballot.  No ID provisional ballot voters will have no later than noon on the Friday following the election to deliver a copy of an acceptable form of identification to the local Electoral Board.  If the Electoral Board does not receive a copy of an acceptable form of identification before the noon Friday deadline, the ballot cannot be counted.
