WASHINGTON — Monday is the deadline for Virginia voters to register or update their addresses in order to vote in next month’s election; for Maryland, it’s Tuesday.
In Fairfax County, which is expected to have more votes cast than any other in the commonwealth, more than 6,000 absentee ballots have already been cast in person or by mail. More than 30,000 have been mailed to voters.
The deadline for D.C. residents who want to register to vote by mail or email was Oct. 11, but D.C. residents can still register to vote in person at the polls during early voting or on Election Day.
On Election Day, however, voters must ensure they go to the correct precinct based on their address.
Registration in Maryland, Virginia and D.C. can be done online before the deadlines.
Residents of D.C. can register here.
Maryland residents can register here.
Virginia residents can register here.
In Virginia, all voters who cast ballots in person must show photo identification. Voters who show up at the polls without it can cast a provisional ballot that only gets counted if the voter later shows an acceptable ID to the local electoral board.
