Albemarle Co. Official: Be Sure to Carry Proper ID to Vote in Election

Nov. 4, 2013

Local voting officials are reminding residents of everything they need to know before heading out to the polls Tuesday.

The polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Officials are expecting between 40 and 50 percent voter turnout for the Albemarle County area.

They say the busiest times at precincts will be first thing in the morning, around lunch time, and while people are on their way home from work.

While at the polls, don't be afraid to ask an election official if you need any help.

Also, they say the most important thing to remember is to bring acceptable identification.

"Acceptable ID is a Virginia voter card, Virginia driver's license," says Albemarle Co. Voter Registrar Jake Washburn. "There are several others; A social security card, a U.S. passport, a concealed carry permit, a student ID from a Virginia college or university."

Go to the State Board of Elections website if you are unsure of where to vote.
