RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Get ready to cast your vote! Early voting will end tomorrow, with Election Day just three days later.

Early voting started on Sept. 22 and will end on Saturday, Nov. 4. Election Day for everyone else is set for Tuesday, Nov. 7.

According to the Virginia Public Access Project (VPAP), there have been more than 648,000 votes cast already in this election. In the 2022 November General Election, there were 972,209 votes submitted as part of early voting.

VPAP reporting also shows that more Republicans voted early ahead of this year’s election than in 2021 and 2022. 

But what can you expect to see on the ballot this year? All 140 seats in the House of Delegates and State Senate are open for election. There will also be a referendum for the highly contested Richmond Grand Casino.

A recent poll showed that the chances of voters successfully bringing the $562 million casino destination resort to Richmond’s Southside are nearly split 50-50.

What you need to know ahead of Election Day

Election locations will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 7, for those voting on election day.

According to the Virginia Department of Elections, voters must bring one valid form of identification. That can be anything from a driver’s license, a state-issued ID or even a passport. For a complete list of acceptable forms of identification to bring, visit the Department of Elections website.

If you show up to your polling place and you don’t have your ID, you can sign an “ID confirmation statement “or vote using a provisional ballot. A provisional ballot is a way for people to vote when their voter registration or qualifications are in question.

Another factor to take into consideration is polling location. Locations can change from year to year, and it may not be the same as it was in the previous election cycle.

To find your location for this year’s election, visit the Department of Elections website and enter your address, the website will then provide you with a location.

If you are sending an absentee ballot, it must be postmarked on or before election day to be counted.
