Voter I.D. Requirements in Virginia

The State Board of Elections explains Virginia’s voter i.d. requirements here.


Registered voters must notify the General Registrar either by mail or in person of any change in name or address prior to the close of voter registration for an election. This may be accomplished by:

  • writing the new information on the reverse side of your Voter Card, signing the card, and returning it to the Office of the General Registrar
  • completing and returning a Virginia Voter Registration Application

Read your Voter Card for information about where you vote or call the Office of the General Registrar for information before going to the polls. You must vote in the precinct assigned by your residence.
