Apply to Register to Vote
You may apply to register to vote or change your voter registration name or address at any DMV office; however, DMV does not register you to vote or change your voter address. By law, only a local voter registrar can register you to vote or change your voter information.
You can use DMV's driver's license/ID card application (form DL-1P) to indicate that you would like to apply to register to vote or change voter information. If you are a citizen of the United States and wish to apply to register to vote, answer the citizenship and voter registration questions on the application with "Yes" and you will be provided with a voter registration application to complete. Follow the instructions on the voter registration application carefully - you must complete all boxes and provide complete information on the voter registration application. Be sure to sign and date the voter registration application.
To change your voter registration name or address, you may complete either the driver's license/ID card application (form DL-1P) or the separate driver's license/ID card address change request (form ISD-01).
You are not registered to vote until your voter registration application is approved by your local voter registrar. If approved, you should receive a voter registration card within 30 days showing your voting location and election district. Contact your local registrar if you do not receive the voter registration card.
In addition, you can check with the Virginia State Board of Elections at 1-800-552-9745 (TDD 1-800-260-3466) if you have questions about voter registration or the status of your application, or if you do not receive your voter registration card.
