Voter Law Under Possible Microscope

Posted:

Virginia's new voter identification law could put the state's election system under the microscope for hours or even days in this fall's race for the White House and a critical Senate race. 

The law, enacted this year, requires voters to bring some form of ID with them to the polls. Those who don't will be given provisional ballots that will be counted only if they provide proof of residency by noon the Friday after the November 6 election. 

Voter registrars hope to avoid chaos by educating voters on acceptable forms of ID.
