Bring your ID to VOTE!

Do I need an ID to vote in Virginia? The answer is YES!

All voters casting a ballot in-person will be asked to show one form of identification.


Any voter who does not present acceptable identification may instead sign a statement, subject to felony penalties, that they are the named registered voter who they claim to be.


Any voter who does not present acceptable identification or sign this statement must vote a provisional ballot. Below and on this link you will find a list of acceptable ID's to vote in Virginia.

Can I vote if I forget my ID?

Yes! If you get to your polling place without acceptable ID, you can sign an ID statement affirming your identity, you will be able to vote a regular ballot.

If you do not sign an ID statement to affirm your identity you may vote a provisional ballot. You will be provided instructions to ensure your vote will count.
