  • Voter registration confirmation documents
  • A Virginia driver’s license, expired or unexpired
  • A United States passport
  • Any identification issued by the the state of Virginia, one of its political subdivisions or the United States
  • A college student ID card

  • A copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck or other government document that shows your name and address

If you don’t have any ID, you will need to sign a statement that says you are the registered voter you claim to be. If you don’t show an ID or sign the statement, you will be offered a provisional ballot.
