Virginia Constitution

Article II, Section 1:
"Any person who will be qualified with respect to age to vote at the next general election shall be permitted to register in advance and also to vote in any intervening primary or special election."

This means that starting the day AFTER the general election, if you will be 18 by the NEXT general election, you can register to vote, and then vote in a primary or special election even BEFORE you are 18, as long as you will be 18 by the next general election. That rule went into effect in 1977. Interesting.
