Dual Primary Voting  

When voting in the March 1, 2016 Presidential Primary you will be asked:

“Do you wish to vote in the Democratic Party Primary?”
OR
“Do you wish to vote in the Republican Party Primary?"
Click on the Party Primary link above to see sample ballot.   

Virginia does not have "Party registration."  (§§ 24.2-101, 24.2-418)
The choice to vote in a Party's primary does not mean that you will be "registered" with that Party.
All persons qualified to vote may vote in either primary.  (§ 24.2-530) 

  • The Voter must indicate their choice of primary ballot to the Officer of Elections.
  • The Officer must confirm that he or she heard their choice correctly.
  • No Voter may be challenged on their choice of a primary.  

From now until Election Day some candidate(s) may drop out of the Primary race.  The ballots have already been printed and therefore their name will still appear on the ballot.  We will post a notice of candidate(s) that have withdrawn in the voting booths and in the office.
