The Virginia State Board of Elections is preparing to mail about 4.7 million voter registration cards. State election officials say the cards should arrive in mailboxes late this week through early October.

Last May, Gov. Bob McDonnell signed a measure into law that requires voters without proper ID at the polls to cast a provisional ballot. The voter would have until noon on the Friday after the election to submit acceptable identification to the electoral board if they want their vote to be counted.

The board is launching a $500,000 outreach effort to inform residents about the new voter identification rules. The public awareness campaign includes billboards, radio and print advertising.
