Registering to Vote
To be eligible to register to vote in Virginia a person must:
Be a resident of Virginia (A person who has come to Virginia for temporary purposes and intends to return to another state is not considered a resident for voting purposes)
Be a U. S. Citizen
Be 18 years old (Any person who is 17 years old and will be eighteen years of age at the next general election shall be permitted to register in advance and also vote in any intervening primary or special election)
Not claim the right to vote in any other state
Not currently be declared mentally incompetent by a court of law
If convicted of a felony, your right to vote must have been restored
To register you must complete and submit a Virginia Voter Registration Application.
Applications may be obtained through the local voter registration office, by downloading the application and submitting it to the local voter registration office or through online application submission. You may register to vote year-round except during the 21 days prior to a general or primary election.
Paper registration applications may be deposited at our office in person or by mail. Virginia Law requires that those who register by mail, rather than in person, will be required to vote in person the first time they vote. Exempt from this requirement are military service members and dependents, overseas citizens employed outside the continental U.S., full-time students, and disabled persons.
Voter ID Requirements
Virginia law requires all voters to provide an acceptable form of identification (photo ID) at the polls. Voters arriving at the polls without a 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 their identification to their localities electoral board in order for their provisional ballot to be counted.
