Virginia Voter ID Requirements


If you registered in person and provided sufficient ID at that time, you won’t need to provide ID when you vote absentee.

If you registered to vote by mail, and you did not fulfill the ID requirements at that time, you should include a copy of your ID with your absentee ballot application. If you don’t, you’ll be notified by mail that you must provide a copy of your identification in order to receive an absentee ballot.

If first-time voter, a current and valid photo ID (for example a driver’s license); a current utility bill, bank statement, government check or paycheck that shows name and address; or another government document that shows name and address (for example a voter card).

American Crossroads uses the most up-to-date information available, but all absentee voters are encouraged to check with their local clerk or their Secretary of State to confirm their absentee voting requirements before they submit an absentee voting registration so that they do not have any difficulties casting their ballot.
