NEW: Same-Day Voter Registration
- Did you forget to register by the Oct 16th deadline? No worries! In VA, we have same day voter registration where you can register/update your information and vote on the same day. To do this during early voting, head to your early voting location. In Newport News, that's City Hall or City Center. Ask to register and once you fill out the information, you can vote by provisional ballot. And then the staff will work to verify your information and then your vote will count.
- Please share this information with your friends and family! It also helps those who have had their rights restored! Check your status to see if your voting rights have been restored. If they have, you can register to vote and vote on the same day! Check your status: Restore.Virginia.Gov
Don't forget your Voter ID!
You can use voter ID to vote, such as your driver's license or an utility bill with your name and address on it or here's a list of eligible ID's you can use. If you do not have an ID or forget your ID when you go vote, you can sign a form attesting to who you are and vote by provisional ballot.
