Voting for the Future

Voting is one of—if not the—most important right of American citizens.

Voting can be confusing at times, however, the Virginia Department of Elections has created the Virginia Voter Pocket Guide to help make it an easy process for all.

Register or Update Information

Registering to vote in Virginia is easy, but does require that an individual meet certain requirements. Already registered but need to update or change your voter information? All of this can be done online with the Virginia Department of Elections.

Request an Absentee Ballot

Virginia residents are able to vote via absentee ballot by filling out an application to do so. After submitting an application, voters are able to see if their absentee application was received, and whether their ballot was sent and received.

Have Other Questions?

The Virginia Department of Elections' website offers several types of resources, including a comprehensive Q&A page covering everything from polling hours, polling locations, voter eligibility, and documents voters are required to show when voting in person.
