To improve your chances of successful registration:

  • Complete all information blocks on the application. If any information requested does not apply to you, indicate such by writing the word “NONE” or “NA” in that space.

  • Sign and date the registration application file your completed application either by mailing to the pre-printed addressed or delivering it to a local registration office.

Failure to complete the form properly could result in your registration being delayed or denied.; Note that you must provide your social security number, if any, when applying to register to vote in Virginia. Therefore, if you do not provide your social security number, your application for voter registration will be denied. State and local voting officials will use your social security number as a unique identifier to insure that no person is registered in more than one place. Records containing your social security number will not be open to inspection by the public. Your social security number will appear on reports produced only for official use by voter registration and election officials, and for jury selection purposes by courts.

Where to Send Your Completed Application

  • The Voter Registration Application is pre-addressed and can be mailed via the U.S. postal service or hand-delivered to any official registration office.

  • If mailed, the application must be postmarked no later than the deadline.

  • If delivered in person, either by the applicant or a third party, the application must be received by the deadline.

  • Applications postmarked or received after the deadline will be held and processed after the election.

  • For questions concerning completing the application and voting on election day, call your local registration office.

  • Check your voter registration record online.

  • For other questions contact Virginia State Board of Elections.
