Do I need to provide ID when I vote by absentee ballot in Virginia

If you registered in person and provided sufficient ID at that time, you won't need to provide IDwhen you vote absentee. If you registered to vote by mail, and you did not fulfill the ID requirements at that time, you should include a copy of your ID with your absentee ballot application. If you don't, you'll be notified by mail that you must provide a copy of your identification in order to receive an absentee ballot.Acceptable forms of ID include: A current and valid photo ID (for example a driver۪s license) that shows your name and Virginia address; or a current utility bill, bank statement, government check or paycheck that shows name and address; or another government document that shows name and Virginia address (for example a voter card).
