Online voter registration available in Virginia
The State Board of Elections, in partnership with the Virginia Department of Motor Vehicles, recently launched online voter registration. Eligible Virginians will now be able to submit a voter registration application or update their registration information online.
In order to complete the application process online, residents must provide their Virginia DMV customer identifier number, which is displayed on DMV-issued driver’s licenses or identification cards. Those who do not have a Virginia DMV customer number may fill out the registration application online, but will be required to print and return the completed application to the appropriate local voter registration office.
Applicants will be notified directly via mail by the local voter registration office once an application has been processed. Voters will also be mailed a new or updated voter registration card once the appropriate general registrar accepts the application or update.
