Even if you’ve registered in the past, it’s worthwhile to check again as some factors could have led to your status changing. These include:

  • moving
  • changing your name
  • updating your political party
  • state maintenance on the voter registration files

If you believe this information is incorrect, you can also confirm your registration status at your local election office website and/or report the error to the Election Protection Hotline at 866-OUR-VOTE.

2. Find out where to vote

Important things to keep in mind when voting in VIRGINIA:

  • Polling locations are open until 7 p.m. As long as you are in line to vote by 7 p.m., you have the right to stay in line and cast a ballot.
  • Stay safe and be prepared for lines. Wear a mask, bring sanitizer and a pen, keep your distance, and bring water and a charged phone. If you have any issues at the polls, call or text Election Protection at 866-OUR-VOTE or 866-687-8683.
  • You no longer need a photo ID to vote in Virginia. You will need to show one form of identification, including any government document that shows your name and address, or a bank statement, utility bill, or paycheck.
  • If you have an absentee ballot, it must be postmarked on or before November 2, 2021 and received by 12 p.m. on November 5, 2021 by your local registrar in order to count. You can also return your ballot in person at your polling location on Election Day as long as you do so by 7 p.m.
  • If returning your absentee ballot to a drop box, remember to sign and date the return envelope, and include your phone number in case election officials need to follow up with you.
