New voter ID law in effect for Nov. 4
According to the county's election office, acceptable forms of ID include: a valid Virginia driver's license or ID card; a valid DMV-issued Veteran's ID card; a U.S. passport; a valid college or university student photo ID card from a higher education institution in Virginia; a voter ID card obtained through any local registrar's office.
The change in voter ID law comes because of recent legislation passed by the General Assembly.
A voter who arrives at the polling place without an acceptable form of photo identification may vote through a provisional ballot. After completing the ballot, the voter will be given written instructions from election officials on how to submit a copy of his or her identification so that his/her vote can be counted.
Loudoun residents can cast in-person absentee ballots until Nov. 1 at 5 p.m. at the following locations: 750 Miller Drive SE, Suite C, Leesburg, 20175; the Cascades Senior Center, 21060 Whitfield Place, Sterling, 20165; and the Dulles South Multipurpose Center, 24950 Riding Center Drive, South Riding, 20152. Those locations hold Monday-Friday hours of 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
