A new Virginia Voter ID law requires one acceptable form of identification to vote. Acceptable forms of ID include:
VA Voter Registration Card
Valid VA Driver's License or ID Card
ID card issued by the Commonwealth of Virginia, a Political Subdivision,
or the U.S. Government
Valid student ID card issued by an institute of higher education located in VA
Valid employee photo ID card
Current utility bill, bank statement or government check with
current name and address
For more information including additional acceptable forms of ID, visit www.sbe.virginia.gov or call 1-800-552-9745.
*During a federal election, first time voters who registered to vote by mail are required to attach a copy of one ID document required by federal law. A social security card is not an acceptable form of ID.
Effective July 1, 2014, all Virginia voters will be required to have a photo ID when voting.
