NOTE: Virginia’s voter identification laws have changed. All voters must provide an acceptable form of identification when voting in person. Those who do not have an acceptable ID must either complete an ID Confirmation Statement or vote a provisional ballot. This requirement applies both to in person absentee voting before Election Day as well as Election Day voting. Click here for more information.
Voters who have a valid Virginia driver’s license or other DMV ID can now register to vote or update their voter registration directly online through the Department of Elections website.

Voters may also print an application from the Department of Elections website, or pick up a paper application at any city post office, library, or any Commonwealth voter registration office.
On Election Day, polls open at 6 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.
