Voter ID Information

State law requires all voters to provide an acceptable form of photo identification at the polls. If you don’t have an approved form of photo ID, you can apply for a free Virginia Voter Photo ID Card at your local voter registration office (even on Election Day). The form is easy!

Voters who do not bring an acceptable form of ID to the polls will vote on a provisional ballot. This ballot will only be counted if the local electoral board receives a copy of your ID by noon on the Friday after the election.

Why are the Parties listed in that order?

The order is decided by random drawing, with the two major parties listed before the other recognized parties. Virginia Code §24.2-613.B provides that political party identification be shown on the ballot ONLY for federal, statewide and General Assembly candidates. It does not appear on the ballot for any other candidate.

What are Districts?

Each voter is in several different districts:

Federal Elections
Federal Congressional District, for US House of Representatives elections. All of Montgomery and Floyd Counties are in the Virginia's 9th Congressional district. There are no "districts" for the US Senate; everyone in the state votes on the same race.

State Elections
State Senate: Floyd is in the Virginia 19th Senate District. Montgomery County residents are in either the 19th, 21st, or 38th District.
House of Delegates: Floyd is in the Virginia 7th House of Delegates District. Montgomery County residents are in the 7th, 8th or 12th District.

County / Local Elections
Counties are also divided into districts which are the basis for certain races, such as School Board Members or Board of Supervisor elections. Town residents vote for County and Town races when they occur.
