Election Day is approaching fast and it is urgent that Virginians make sure they are registered by the Oct. 15 deadline and that their registration is up to date. I am the chairwoman of the nonpartisan nonprofit Virginia Organizing, and we are working hard to make sure every eligible voter in the commonwealth is registered and has his or her vote counted.
Not only is it important for you to check with the local registrar or online at sbe.vir ginia.gov to be sure your registration is up to date, you also need to know what ID you must bring for your vote to be counted. There is a list of acceptable IDs on the State Board of Elections' website, and if you have problems voting, you can call 866/OUR-VOTE and get help.
Civic engagement is an important part of our political process ,and voting is a way you can have your voice heard.
