Voters must present one valid form of identification – generally a voter registration card, current driver’s license or other government- or employer-issued photo identification card, or one of a number of other state-approved non-photo IDs.  Important:  There will be no changes to Virginia’s existing voter ID requirements until 2014.  A newly enacted state law requiring photo identification will not take effect until July 1, 2014.

If you are not a registered voter but want to vote in the November 5, 2013 general election, you have until the 22nd day before that date to register.  Registering is a one-time event – once you are registered, you can vote in all future local, state, and federal elections.  You must be 18, a United States citizen, and a Virginia resident.  You have three ways to register, either by mail or in person:  1) you can pick up a Virginia Voter Application at any Norfolk library, DMV or social service agency; 2) you can go to the Norfolk General Registrar’s office, located in Room 808 of City Hall; or 3) you can download the application at the State Board of Elections website atwww.sbe.virginia.gov.

For further information on acceptable forms of identification, absentee voting, registering to vote, or any other questions about voting, call the Norfolk General Registrar’s office at 757-664-4353, or visit the website of the State Board of Elections at www.sbe.virginia.gov.
