The State Board of Elections wants everyone to be able to make it out to vote for the November race.
To do so, they are giving the public an opportunity to get a free voter identification card.
Starting July 1, voter registration offices around the Commonwealth will be offering voter ID cards free of charge.
“There are 133 voter registrar's offices,” says Susan Lee, manager of election uniformity in Virginia. “There is one in every city or county in Virginia, so if you don't have and acceptable form of identification, please go to the registrar’s office and get one issued for you.”
The Board of Elections hopes that this will eliminate any confusion over valid voter IDs on Election Day.
Other forms of ID, including state-issued driver’s licenses and passports, will be accepted at the polls.
