ID Required to Vote

Important Notice: New Voter ID Requirements

Virginia law requires all voters to provide an acceptable form of valid photo identification (photo ID) at the polls. Voters arriving to the polls without valid photo 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.

Please Note: Valid means the document is genuine, bears the photograph of the voter, and is not expired for more than 12 months

Acceptable forms of identification include the following:

  • valid Virginia driver's license;

  • valid United States passport;

  • any other photo identification card issued by a government agency of the Commonwealth, one of its political subdivisions, or the United States;

  • valid student identification card containing a photograph of the voter issued by any institution of higher education located in the Commonwealth of Virginia;

  • any 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
