Remember that you must show photo ID to vote this year (for example a Virginia driver's license, a student ID issued by a Virginia higher education campus, or a passport).

What's on your ballot? Whether you're in the City or County of Fairfax or the City of Falls Church, you'll have different questions and candidates on your ballot. Find out what you're voting for at our 2014 election page.


Don't forget to post your "I voted" sticker with #YDVote14 and tell us in what precinct you voted!

While this may sound daunting, there are many accepted explanations for needing to vote absentee in person or by mail. As long as you registered by the deadline yesterday, you may be eligible to vote early absentee. You can download the application to receive a mail-in ballot here.
