Please be reminded that changes were made to Virginia's voter identification laws in 2012. State law requires all voters to provide an acceptable form of identification at the polls, which includes your voter registration card or drivers license.
Voters arriving to the polls without ID will be required to vote a provisional ballot and will have until noon on the Friday after the election to deliver a copy of identification to their locality's electoral board in order for their provisional ballot to be counted.
