Saturday is first of two absentee voting days in Virginia
These two Saturdays of absentee voting provide additional non-workday opportunities for voters who may not be able to make it to their polling place on Election Day, or to their voter registration office during the week.
All voters, voting in-person, including absentee voters, must now show an acceptable photo ID when casting their ballot. Voters who do not have an acceptable form of ID may still vote absentee in-person after completing the Virginia Voter Photo Identification Card Application and receiving a Temporary Identification Document from their voter registration office. More information about the voter photo ID law can be found at the Department of Elections’ website at elections.virginia.gov.
All Virginia voters are encouraged to check their registration status and polling place on the Department of Elections’ website at elections.virginia.gov or by calling their local general registrar’s office. Virginia voters may also call the Department of Elections’ toll free number for assistance at 1-800-552-9745.
