Why this doesn't work

I don't know why this doesn't work ''' var fullName = document.getElementById("#full_name"); var lastName ; '''

var fullName = document.getElementById("#full_name");
var lastName ;
<!DOCTYPE html>
<h1 id="full_name"><span class="first_name">Andrew</span> <span class="last_name">Chalkley</span></h1>

<script src="app.js"></script>

You are already using getElementById, so you don't need the # in front of full_name in your code. Delete that, and it'll work! :)
