JUNE 11, 2019 PRIMARY ELECTIONS
Absentee voting for the June 11 Republican and Democratic primary elections has begun.
There are Virginia House, Virginia Senate, and local primaries. If there are primaries for both parties in your area, you must choose whether you want to vote in the Republican OR the Democratic primary.
Your Virginia House of Delegates district may have changed due to redistricting. If so, you should have received a notice from your local Registrar. If you are uncertain, check your status on the Virginia Department of Elections website at https://vote.elections.virginia.gov/VoterInformation
Information on the candidates is available at http://www.VOTE411.org. If there are primaries for both parties in your area, VOTE 411 will ask you to choose the Republican OR the Democratic ballot. However, you can choose one and then reenter your address and choose the other to see all the possible candidates.
As of 2014, you must present an acceptable form of photo identification when voting in Virginia. Included are:
If you do not have an acceptable form of identification please contact your local voter registration office for a free ID.
