Completing the Application

To improve your chances of successful registration, you should do the following:

. Complete all information blocks on the application. If any information requested does not apply to you, indicate such by writing the word “NONE” or “NA” in that space.

. Sign and date the registration application.

. File your completed application either by mailing to the preprinted addressed or delivering it to a local voter registration office.

Failure to complete the form properly could result in your registration being delayed or denied.

Virginia’s voter registration application form requires the applicant to provide his/her full name, including the maiden name and any other prior legal name; age; gender; date and place of birth; complete social security number, if any; whether the person is presently a United States citizen; resident address of place of abode and date of residence in the precinct; place of last previous registration to vote; whether you have ever been adjudicated to be mentally incompetent or convicted of a felony and, if so, under what circumstance your right to vote has been restored. Also, unless physically or educationally unable, you must sign the application.

Note that you must provide your complete social security number, if any, when applying to register to vote in Virginia. Therefore, if you do not provide all eight number of your social security number, your application for voter registration will be denied. State and local voting officials will use your social security number as a unique identifier to insure that no person is registered in more than one place. Your registration application will not be open to inspection by the public. Your social security number will appear on reports produced only for official use by voter registration and election officials and, for jury selection purposes, by courts.

In providing your place of abode, keep in mind that a place of abode is a physical place in which you live. Property on which there is no dwelling does not qualify. A business address does not qualify unless you have living quarters there, and you live in no other place. You may have many physical places in which you live but only one of them may be your domicile. A new domicile is not attained until the old one has been abandoned.
