Virginia voter registrar offices will open their doors the two Saturdays before the Nov. 5 general election, offering absentee voters another chance to vote in-person.

Offices will open for eight hours on Oct. 26 and Nov. 2.

The last day to vote absentee in-person at the local registrar’s office is Nov. 2. Identification is required for in-person absentee voting. Acceptable forms of identification include a Virginia voter registration card; valid Virginia driver’s license; military ID; any federal, Virginia state or local government-issued ID; an employer-issued photo ID card; a concealed handgun permit; a valid student ID issued by any institution of higher education in Virginia; a current utility bill, bank statement, government check or paycheck indicating the name and address of the voter; or a Social Security card.

Voters should contact their local registrar’s office to confirm business hours for both Saturdays.

Applications to vote absentee are available online at or at local voter registration offices. To vote by mail, instead of in-person, the application must be received by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 29.
