Voter Resources

Student Voting Guide

Affordable Colleges Online has teamed up with VoteAmerica to publish
a guide for first-time and college voters. This guide covers voting essentials
including registration, informed voting, and voting organizations. 

Some first-time voters in Virginia cannot vote absentee by mail. If you registered to vote by mailing in your voter registration application, and it is your first time voting in your locality, you cannot vote by mail in a state or local election unless you meet one of the following conditions:

  • You are a student attending college/university outside of your city/county of residence in Virginia
  • You have a disability or illness that prevents you from voting in person
  • You are pregnant
  • You are confined awaiting trial or you are confined following conviction for a misdemeanor
  • You are active duty merchant marine or in the armed forces or a spouse or dependent of an active duty service member
  • You are temporarily residing outside of the United States
  • You have moved to another state less than thirty days before a Presidential election and you are requesting a ballot for Presidential and Vice-Presidential electors only
  • You are age 65 or older

Check with your local General Registrar to confirm your eligibility to vote absentee by mail. Special federal ID requirements apply to certain first-time voters.
