Do I need an ID to vote? What do I need to bring with me to vote?

You will not need your voter registration card on Election Day. 

You must show ID or sign an ID Confirmation Statement to vote. The most common IDs to use are your Virginia driver’s license or your Voter ID card, as these have a barcode that makes checking in easier.  Acceptable ID can be any one of the following:

  • Your voter confirmation documents
  • Your Virginia driver’s license
  • Your Virginia DMV-issued photo ID
  • Your U.S. Passport
  • Your employer-issued photo ID
  • Any other U.S. or Virginia government-issued photo ID
  • Your valid Tribal enrolment or other Tribal ID
  • Your Voter ID Card issued by the Department of Elections
  • A valid student ID issued by a public or private school of higher education located in the U.S.
  • A valid student ID issued by a public or private high school in Virginia
  • A current utility bill, bank statement, government check, or paycheck containing your name and address
  • A signed ID Confirmation Statement

You may learn more on the Virginia Department of Election website to include learning about the provisional ballot process for voters without an acceptable form of identification and who refuse to sign an ID Confirmation Statement.
