(WWBT) - The deadline to apply to register to vote in the Nov. 8 general election is Monday, Oct. 17.
The easiest way to apply to register to vote or update your address information is to go to the Virginia Department of Elections website until 11:59 p.m.
In order to complete the application, you must provide your Virginia DMV customer identification number, which is printed on the driver's license.
If you do not have a Virginia DMV customer identifier, you may still fill out the application online but must print and return the application to the appropriate voter registration office.
You can also apply to register to vote at your local registrar's office or at any DMV location across the state. Most of those offices close at 5 p.m.
Those who need to update their address with both the DMV and the State Board of Elections may do so here.

In order to vote in Virginia, you must be living in Virginia, be a U.S. resident, and be 18 years old (or 18 by Nov. 8). You must not be registered in another state or be declared mentally incompetent by a court of law.
If you are voting in person, you must provide an acceptable form of photo identification, which can be found here.
