VIRGINIA (WRIC) — The last day to vote early in Virginia is Saturday!

Early voting in Virginia started on September 18 and runs through October 31st, then polls re-open on Tuesday, November 3.

The Virginia General Assembly passed new legislation this year allowing Virginia voters to vote early or absentee without an excuse.

As of Oct. 30, more than 2.4 million Virginians have already voted in this year’s election, a figure that represents more than 61 percent of the 3,984,631 total votes counted in Virginia in the 2016 election.

Any registered voter can go vote early in person at their local registrar’s office.

Chesterfield County and Henrico County have several early voting poll sites, plus curbside voting. Richmond’s early voting site is located at the new registrar’s office at 2134 W. Laburnum Avenue.

When you arrive at the registrar’s office to vote, you will need to provide your name, address and an acceptable form of ID. A voter who does not bring an acceptable ID to the polls or does not sign an ID Confirmation Statement will be offered a provisional ballot, the Department of Elections said.

If you can’t vote early, polls in Virginia open at 6 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. on Election Day. If a voter is in line by 7 p.m., they will be allowed to vote.
