Where to vote in Virginia — and when to do it

There are three things you need to know to vote in Virginia today: Where, when and how.
(Click to read the related article here.(Cristina Rivero/The Washington Post))

• Vote from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.

• Here’s where to find your polling place.

• Here's how to check your voter registration status.

• Here’s how to request an absentee ballot.

Projections indicate this election will come with high stakes but low turnout. In 2007, the last similar election, just 30 percent of registered voters cast a ballot. In 2003, the number was 31 percent. There’s a chance the same one-third could turn out today, even though the Virginia Senate’s balance of power could shift toward the Republican Party.
