New Voter ID Laws take effect July 1, 2014
Barbara Gunter, General Registrar for Bedford County, guest speaker at our July meeting, explained the new Voter ID regulations that took effect on July 1. The old pieces of identification have been replaced with the requirement that a photo ID must now be presented when you vote. The IDs may be a valid VA driver license or DMV issued ID card, any other Government issued photo ID, a student photo ID from a Virginia university or college, a USA passport, a photo ID from your employer, or a new Voter Photo ID Card. This Voter Card may be obtained free of charge from the Registrar's office, 122 E. Main St., Bedford. Office hours are 8:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. and the phone number is 540-586-7649. State Voter Info23
