WHAT TO BRING WHEN VOTING EARLY
By law, voters must show identification when they vote — but a photo ID, like a driver’s license, is no longer required. You may use as ID a copy of your:
- Current utility bill.
- Bank statement.
- Government check.
- Other government document with the voter’s name and address.
Of course, photo IDs remain an acceptable form of identification — and you can even use an expired Virginia driver’s license no matter how long ago it expired.
VOTE BY MAIL: SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER AND BIRTH YEAR REQUIRED
For voters who already requested them, their absentee ballots will begin to arrive in the mail after Sept. 22.
To vote by mail, you must apply by Oct. 27 at 5 p.m., and any registered voter can absentee vote by mail without needing a reason or excuse.
The fastest and most secure way to apply is online on the Virginia Department of Elections website. You’ll also be able to track the status of your application, as well as when your ballot is mailed to you. Your Virginia driver’s license number is needed to apply online, along with the last four digits of your Social Security number.
As a result of a new state law, you must now include the last four digits of your social security number and year of birth when filling out your return envelope for your mail-in ballot. This information will be behind a mailing flap so it won't be publicly visible. Don’t forget to sign the envelope too.
If you don’t want to mail back your cast ballot, you can return it at a drop-off box at any early voting site during the hours they’re open. There also is a 24-hour secure, drop-off box available outside the Fairfax County Government Center.
For questions or more information, contact the Fairfax County Office of Elections at 703-222-0776, TTY 711, from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on weekdays.
