2. You can register to vote in only one jurisdiction. If you have moved since you last registered to vote, you should register from your new address. You can register to vote at any time of the year; however, to participate in an upcoming election, your voter registration application must be received by published registration deadlines.

3. To vote in Virginia, students must be U.S. citizens, residents of Virginia, and be 18 years old by the next election.  They must not be mentally incompetent as determined by a court of law. If convicted of a felony, the right to vote must have been restored.
