200,000 in Va. may lack proper ID needed to vote
A state law that took effect this year requires Virginia voters to show some form of photo identification at their polling stations before they cast a vote.
The Washington Post reports that driver's licenses are the most common form of ID in the state. And according to data from the state, 198,902 voters in Virginia are without those.
Voters who lack such proof would be allowed to fill out provisional ballots, but election officials hope more people will obtain state ID cards or some other valid form of ID so that their votes could be more easily counted.
Loudoun citizens who do not have an acceptable form of photo ID may obtain a free Virginia Voter Photo Identification Card at the Office of Elections, 750 Miller Drive, S.E., Suite C, Leesburg, VA 20175, Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. More information on photo ids and voting is online at http://www.loudoun.gov/photo-id.
