RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — The last day to register to vote in Virginia’s Nov. 8 election without the use of a provisional ballot is Monday, Oct. 17 at 5 p.m.

This November, Virginians will be voting for candidates in the state’s House of Representatives as well as several state and local issues.

“I know that I personally want to be more involved in local elections because I think that’s where we start in telling them what we really want,” said Virginia resident Shelby Hannas.

Hannas told 8News she already registered to vote at the Heart of Virginia Festival last month, but after getting married and changing her last name, she wants to make sure her vote will still count.

“I just need to get my I.D. in order,” she said.

Anyone submitting their voter registration by mail must have an application postmarked by the deadline. Applications delivered in person must be received by 5 p.m. Voters can also register online here. Those who do not register by Monday’s deadline will still be able to register through Election Day by using a provisional ballot.

In order to register, applicants must be United States citizens and residents of Virginia. Applicants must also be at least 18 years old and have a Virginia driver’s license or state I.D. card

More information on voting and registration can be found in WRIC’S voting guide.
