You must have identification to vote.
Acceptable photo IDs in Virginia include:

- Valid Virginia driver's license
- Military ID
- 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 see below as 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. Chesapeake Voter Registrar Al Spradlin explained to WAVY.com, "It will be placed in a sealed envelope and it won't be opened until we have your ID. Now you have until noon on Friday to provide us with an ID if you vote provisional."
If you applied for an absentee ballot and are going instead to vote in person, you must bring the absentee ballot with you.
