Where to Vote in Reston

Nov. 8 is Election Day, and I hope every eligible voter in Reston has registered and is ready to cast a vote in this very important election.

It’s too late to register in Virginia (I wish we had same day voter-registration, but we don’t). However, I have found over the years that many of my clients who are new to the area aren’t sure where they’re supposed to vote.

So, to honor this day, here is information on how to find your polling place:

Super Tuesday voters check in at South Lakes HS polling placeYour voter information card lists the name and address of your voting location (polling place).

However, if you still aren’t sure where to go, the Virginia Department of Elections website has an online form to help you find your polling place called Where do I vote?. This online form provides your precinct code based on the address you submit. You can then check out this online map of the district polling places to find your designated spot.

If you can’t locate your polling place, or if you have any questions about where you should vote on election day, please call 703-222-0776.

What You Need to Have With You

Lost your voter ID card? Well, you don’t actually have to have it to vote. According to the Virginia Board of Elections, here is what you do need to have (bring one):

  • Valid Virginia Driver’s License or Identification Card
  • Valid Virginia DMV-issued Veteran’s ID card
  • Valid United States Passport
  • Other government-issued photo identification cards (must be issued by U.S. Government, the Commonwealth of Virginia, or a political subdivision of the Commonwealth)
  • Tribal enrollment or other tribal ID issued by one of 11 tribes recognized by the Commonwealth of Virginia
  • Valid college or university student photo identification card (must be from an institution of higher education located in Virginia)
  • Valid student ID issued by a public school or private school in Virginia, displaying a photo
  • Employee identification card containing a photograph of the voter and issued by an employer of the voter in the ordinary course of the employer’s business

The website also offers a more detailed list of acceptable forms of identification.

It’s time to stop reading and start voting. Maybe I’ll see you at the polls!
