Voter Information for Fairfax County, Mason District

 

Voting is your fundamental right as an American, and the most basic means by which you have a voice in how your government works. By voting, you participate in a process that determines who will represent you, your family, and your neighbors in your community, your state, and your country.

Other ballot issues as they may arise, such as referendum, bonds, etc.

Questions about voter registration or to help with, or organize, a voter registration drive contact us.

As long as you show up at the polls ON TIME, you cannot be turned away without voting on the machines or by casting a provisional ballot. Be sure you are at your correct precinct location.

As of July 1, 2014, voters are required to present a photo ID when they come to vote. Acceptable forms of identification include:

  • Virginia driver’s licenses
  • DMV-issued ID cards
  • Valid U.S. passports
  • Valid employee photo ID cards
  • Virginia college student ID cards
  • Other government-issued photo ID cards.

If you do not have an ID, you will be able to vote a provisional ballot after you sign a statement confirming your identity (you must be in the correct precinct). For more information, you may call the office of Voter Registration at 703.324.4735.

Election Day History
Why it is the day it is. Election Day (the day that United States citizens cast their ballot to elect government officials) is the Tuesday on or after November 2nd.

 

  • November was selected because the harvest work was done.
  • Tuesday was selected because many people had to travel the day before to reach the polling place. Since most people did not travel on Sunday for religious reasons, they did not want it to be on a Monday.
  • Election Day was not to fall on November 1st because it is All Saints Day.
  • Election Day was not to fall on the first of the month because many shop keepers did their books for the preceding month on the first.
