Know before you go

We are all busy and may have every intention of voting, but that’s not good enough. In less than a week are the mid-term elections.

Plan ahead and know your rights before going to the polls. For instance in Virginia, know that you can cast your vote as long as you are in line by 7:00 pm before the polls close. Again, in line by 7:00 pm before the polls close.

If you have questions about any part of the voting process, and/or need a demonstration on how the voting equipment works you have the right to seek help from the election officials.

Here in Virginia, residents should take identification, but if you forget you must sign the “Affirmation of identity” statement before voting. Please be aware that you can not be turned away for failure to have ID.

If you have any problems regarding your eligibility to vote or the casting of your ballot – do not hesitate to ask the election official to call the General Registrar’s office before you leave the polling place. Again do not leave without the General Registrar’s office being contacted.

Make sure your vote count – know your voting rights. In Virginia visit the State Board of Elections at
