RICHMOND, Va. (WAVY) – Early in-person voting for the general election in Virginia begins on September 23 and runs until November 5.

Election Day is Tuesday, November 8.

According to a news release, registered voters who would like to vote early in person should go to the general registrar’s office for their registered jurisdiction, present a valid ID and cast a ballot.

Acceptable IDs include, a Virginia driver’s license, a military ID, a work ID or student ID.

Some jurisdictions may offer early in-person voting at satellite locations in addition to the general registrar’s office. Locations of general registrars offices can be found on the Virginia Department of Election’s website.

Early in-person voting will also be held on the two Saturdays proceeding Election Day.

Absentee ballots will also be mailed out on September 23 to military and overseas voters, as well as those who applied to receive one. Registered voters can request an absentee ballot either in person, by mail, or online.

Absentee ballots must be postmarked no later than November 8.

Virginians who want to vote in this year’s election must register by October 17. People can register online or at their local registration office, public library or DMV.

However Virginians can also now participate in same-day registration. This means people who are not registered by Oct. 17 can still vote at the polls, but through a provisional ballot.

“Provisional ballots are not processed by a vote counting machine at the time of voting, but rather are subject to approval by the local electoral board prior to the ballot being counted,” stated on the elections website. “If your registration application is approved and there are no other issues, your ballot will be counted. If your ballot is not counted, you will receive written notice from your general registrar.”

On Election Day (Nov. 8) the polls open at 6 a.m. Ballots will include local positions and races for the U.S. House of Representatives.
