What is the deadline?

All applications and funds must be collected by December 31, 2019. We must collect 450 pre-paid applications in order for the legislation to be considered.

What happens to the funds I send with my application if the General Assembly fails to approve this new license plate honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.?
Funds will be returned to the applicants. If you paid online, the $1.50 convenience fee per plate cannot be refunded.

Why can't the DMV just provide these cards for free if the law requires free photo voter IDs?

There is no revenue stream at present for additional locations to provide free photo voter IDs outside of the registrar's office for each locality. The funds generated by this specialty license plate will help accomplish this goal and codify it into Virginia law giving the DMV authority to provide these voter ID cards.

I can't figure out how to order - can I talk to someone?

Please contact for IT support and any other questions.
