Saturday In-Person Absentee Voting Set in Va.
RICHMOND, Va. (CBSDC/AP) — Virginia voters eligible to vote absentee can cast their ballots in person the next two Saturdays.
The Virginia State Board of Elections says offices of the general registrars will be open for eight hours those two days. Voters can call their local registrar for exact hours.
Voters must meet one of the numerous eligibility requirements to vote absentee, and acceptable identification will be required for those voting in person.
The following are acceptable forms of identification for in-person voting:
- Virginia voter registration card
- Valid Virginia driver’s license
- Military ID
- Any Federal, Virginia state or local government-issued ID
- Employer issued photo ID card
- Concealed handgun permit
- Valid student ID issued by any institution of higher education located in the Commonwealth of Virginia
- Current utility bill, bank statement, government check or paycheck indicating the name and address of the voter
- Social Security card (*please note the social security card does not satisfy special federal ID requirements)
A voter who does not bring an acceptable ID to the polls will be offered a provisional ballot.
