Yes, all Virginia voters are required to show some form of photo identification when voting in-person. Following are examples of accepted photo ID. Please note that an out-of-state driver’s license is not an acceptable form of photo ID for voting in Virginia.
- Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles issued Driver’s License or Identification
- Photo ID issued by the Commonwealth of Virginia
- Photo ID card issued by a local Virginia Government
- Employer-issued photo ID
- Valid US Passport

If you forget to bring your photo identification to the polls, don’t worry, you’ll still be permitted to vote! You can vote an ID-Provisional Ballot. If you bring one of the accepted forms of identification to the Registrar’s office by noon on the Friday after the election, your vote will count provided you are properly registered.
