In the meantime, here are some important links that you may want to check out before the big day.

What if I want to vote absentee?: Remember, the deadline to request an absentee ballot is Saturday, Nov 5th!

What’s even on my ballot anyway? I’m sure this isn’t your first time hearing this, but POTUS is not the only thing that you’ll be voting on come November 8th! Find out everything that will be on your ballot by entering your address at the link above.

Where exactly is my polling place? Not sure where to go? Fill in your address at the link provided to find out! Remember, you have to vote at the polling place that correlates to the address where you’re REGISTERED to vote!

Do I need I.D.? Yes! Some forms of ID are as simple as a valid Driver’s License or a Virginia Voter Photo Identification card. Check here for a list of all acceptable forms of ID. If you don’t have one, you can get the aforementioned VA Voter Photo ID by visiting any general registrar’s office. Do it quickly! (More information is available at the link!)
