Virginia residents can get a photo ID at their local registrar's office.
Virginia election officials are preparing to implement a new voter identification law that goes into effect next month.
Under the law, documents that don't contain a photograph of the voter are no longer acceptable forms of identification when an individual is voting in person.
The State Board of Elections held 13 regional trainings sessions in May for registrars and their staffs. Additional online training will be available in June.
Hope Amezquita with the American Civil Liberties Union of Virginia says the law could disenfranchise some eligible voters.
She tells the Richmond Times-Dispatch that the plan doesn't require registrars to conduct outreach and solicit voters who need approved photo IDs to vote.
Voters can apply for the new ID cards with local registrars.
