Identification Required to Vote

The law has changed effective July 1, 2020.  Voters are no longer required to show  photo identification (ID).  You will still be asked to present an acceptable form of ID when you vote. You can show any of the following IDs when you vote:

  • Voter confirmation documents
  • Virginia driver’s license*
  • Virginia DMV-issued photo ID
  • United States passport
  • Employer-issued photo ID
  • Student ID issued by any community college or university located in the United States
  • Other U.S. or Virginia government-issued photo ID
  • Tribal enrollment or other tribal photo ID
  • Virginia Voter Photo ID card
  • A copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other government document containing the name and address of the voter
  • For a more detailed list of acceptable IDs
  • * Your DMV license may be used at any time. Virginia law permits an expired DMV license to be used for voting purposes.

Can I vote if I forget my ID?

Yes! If you get to your polling place without acceptable ID, you can sign an ID statement affirming your identity, you will be able to vote a regular ballot. 

If you do not sign an ID statement to affirm your identity you may vote a provisional ballot.
