Please note that in the District 3 School Board race and the Nassawadox Mayor race there were no candidates who qualified for the ballot, so voters will have to write in their choice of candidates. Any resident of the district who is qualified to vote may be written in, but not everyone who wins by write-in accepts the position. Voters should ensure that they have the correct spelling of their write-in candidate and that the person wants the position. If you would like to know more about write-in candidates, or about being a write-in candidate, please call or email the office.

Photo Identification Available at Voter Registration Office

Starting July 1, 2014, voters without an acceptable photo ID will be able to obtain a free photo ID at the Voter Registration office.

This completes the legal process started in 2012 when the General Assembly amended Virginia Code 24.2-643, and required that all voters show ID before voting.

The new law states that voters must show the following acceptable forms of identification: valid Virginia drivers’ license; DMV-issued photo identification card; valid United States passport; valid employee photo identification card; valid college or university photo identification card issued by a Virginia institution of higher education; or other government-issued photo identification card. The current voter registration card will no longer be a valid ID because it has no picture.

If you have one of the above forms of ID, the most likely being a driver’s license, that will be all you will need to show at the polls to vote. This new program is only for voters who do not have any of the above forms of identification. Voters will fill out a form with their voting information, sign an affidavit that they possess no other form of ID, and then have a quick picture taken and their signature captured. The photo ID will be mailed form the State Board of Elections directly to the voter.

If you have any questions, please contact us at (757) 678-0480.
