Welcome to the Southside Democracy Center. At this Democracy Center we will help you with all your voting needs. We offer the following services:
- Check Your Voter Registration
- Register to Vote
- Restore your Voting Rights
- Arrange a free ride to the polls
- Pick up a Photo ID Requirements Card
Make sure you are vote ready. Check your voter registration status at least four (4) times a year; make sure that it reads "Active". When your voter registration status is Active, that means that you are "vote ready" for any Virginia election.
If you have a DMV issued ID (Driver's License of State ID), you can register to vote online. You must be a citizen, Virginia resident, 18 years old by election day and not currently convicted of a felony.
In Virginia you are eligible to have your voting rights restored upon release from prison. The Secretary of the Commonwealth maintains a list of people who have had their rights restored; if you are not already on that list, you can request restoration from the same page.Restoration of Rights
