Voting...some tips

One, in VA it is not required that you have ID to vote. You can have it and it will speed up the process but it is not necessary. If you do not have an ID, just sign an affirmation document saying "you are who you say you are" and go vote. The election officials cannot take you out of line or detain you in any way.

Two, if you are in the wrong precinct, ask the election official where you need to go and if possible make them give you directions.

Three, watch the touch screens. I'm not a conspiracy theorist but it pays to make sure that you are casting the right ballot. There have also been concerns of people not completing their vote by not pressing the "VOTE" button. The election officials and workers have been instructed not to pursue you to tell you of your mistake. This means your vote will be invalidated and not count.

Have fun everyone!
