It’s Summertime and the Online Voter Registration is Easy
July 15, 2014
The Office of Elections is encouraging eligible residents to take a few minutes this summer to update their voter registration information or to register to vote. The online application process is easy and convenient at www.vote.virginia.gov. You are eligible to register to vote if you are a citizen of the United States, at least 18 years of age by the next General Election on Nov. 4 and a resident of Virginia.
In order to complete the process, you will need:
- Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) customer identifier number, which is displayed on your DMV-issued identification card or driver’s license (at the top of your card).
- Social Security Number.
- Birth date.
Fairfax County residents who do not have a Virginia DMV customer number or other required information may still fill out the registration application online, but will be required to print, sign and return the completed application to the Office of Elections, P.O. Box 10161, Fairfax, VA 22038. You may also bring it in-person to the Office of Elections, Suite 323, Fairfax County Government Center, 12000 Government Center Parkway, Fairfax, VA 22035-0081.
After your registration application has been reviewed and processed, you will be mailed a new or updated voter registration card.
The Virginia General Election is Nov. 4 and will include elections for U.S. Senate member, U.S. House of Representatives - 8th, 10th and 11th Congressional Districts, a Transportation Bond Referendum and a Constitutional Amendment. The deadline to register for the Nov. 4 General Election is Oct. 14.
