Those who haven't received cards should make sure registration records are current and correct.

By Staff Reports

The State Board of Election announced that delivery was completed for about 4.6 million voter registration cards mailed to registered voters during the past two weeks.
The board encourages voters who did not receive a voter registration card to review their registration record online at www.SBE.Virginia.gov to ensure their information is current and to note any changes to their polling place or precinct due to redistricting.
Voters may call 1-800-552-9745 or their local general registrar to verify registration information and speak to an official that will provide information on how voters can update their registration, if necessary.
A voter whose registration address is not current would likely have not received a voter registration card by mail.
Voters who need to update information have several options. A registration application is available at the State Board of Elections’ website for printing and mailing.
Voters may also visit a local general registrar’s office, the Department of Motor Vehicles, and other state-designated voter registration agencies and apply to register to vote or update registration information.
Upon an approved registration application or change of registration address or name request, the voter’s local general registrar will mail the voter a new registration card.
Virginians have until Oct. 15 to update their information, if necessary, or to apply to register to vote.

ID Will Be Required At Polls
SBE wants to remind voters that several forms of ID are acceptable for use at the polls in addition to the voter registration card.
Voters are also only required to provide one acceptable form of identification.
Additional acceptable forms of ID include:
• Valid Virginia driver’s license
• Military ID
• any federal, Virginia state or local government-issued ID
• an employer issued photo ID card
• a concealed handgun permit
• a valid student ID issued by an institution of higher education in Virginia
• a current utility bill, bank statement, government check or paycheck displaying the name and address of the voter
• Social Security card.

Voters should visit www.SBE.Virginia to review the voter ID requirements, including special ID requirements for some first time voters in a federal election who registered by mail.
