|Action||Revise Valid Definition|

The current definition of “valid” as adopted by the State Board of Elections on June 10, 2014 is clear and concise, and accurately reflects the purpose of the Virginia voter photo ID requirement, which is to verify the identify of voters who present themselves to vote in an election. The verification of photograph, name and address is sufficient in determining the identity of a voter.
The expiration date of a photo identification card has no bearing on an individual’s identity.
