Election Day Information
Election Day Hours are 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. at every polling place in Virginia.
Virginia Law requires all voters to provide an acceptable form of Identification at the polls. Voters without acceptable ID must sign an ID Confirmation Statement or vote a provisional ballot. You no longer need a photo ID.
Acceptable forms of ID include the following:
- Virginia driver’s license
- Voter confirmation documents you received after you registered to vote
- United States passport
- Employer-issued ID
- ID card issued by the US, Virginia, or a local Virginia government
- Student ID issued by a U.S. school of higher education or a public or private high school in Virginia
- Virginia Voter ID card
- Current utility bill, bank statement, paycheck, government check, or other government document with your name and address
If you forgot your ID on Election Day, you can sign an Identity Confirmation Statement or vote a provisional ballot in the polling place. Provisional ballots are reviewed and counted at the Canvass by the Electoral Board after noon on Monday, November 13.
