Virginia Department of Elections Squashes Voter ID Misinformation

WTVF,  November 3, 2019

Don’t believe everything you read on social media. Like that one post saying Virginia voters need one of those new Real ID driver’s licenses to vote.

It’s not true. ...

Just so there’s no confusion here, you do not need a Real ID to cast a ballot in the election.

Just a drivers license will do, although [Department of Elections Commissioner Chris] Piper says you don’t even really need that. “You can also use any DMV-issued ID, United States passport, your employer-issued photo ID as long as there’s a photo of you on there. Students can use their photo ID issued by school, college or university in Virginia.”
