Virginia’s new ID requirements went into effect on July 1st, 2020. In the General Election, if you choose to vote without presenting an ID card, you will be required to sign an “Affirmation of Identity form” which states that you are who you claim to be and reside at the address you provide, under felony penalty of law.
No-excuse, early voting will begin 45 days prior to the election, including the two Saturday immediately preceding the election.
Absentee voting is also available by mail. Applications can be completed at any time; ballots will begin to be mailed to absentee voters 45 days prior to the election. Due to updated Virginia law, effective July 1st 2020, there is no reason required in order to qualify for absentee voting by mail. You can apply to request an absentee ballot for the November General Election on your citizen portal.
