Summary as introduced:
Elections; identification to register to vote and to vote.  Requires the following: (i) posting notice of legally required voting qualifications and penalties for violations in at least two languages at all polling places; (ii) proof of citizenship with registration applications; and (iii) proof of identification to vote at the polls. Persons failing to provide proof of identification will be allowed to vote a provisional ballot. The bill provides that any person who is registered in Virginia as of January 1, 2013, is deemed to have provided satisfactory proof of citizenship and is not required to submit proof of citizenship; however, that privilege shall not be construed to affirm or deny whether such person is lawfully registered to vote in the Commonwealth. The act will take effect January 1, 2013.
