Virginians will cast their primary ballots in mid-June, and voters should remember a few things as they head to the polls.
Polling stations will be open June 12. There is no early voting in Virginia, and absentee ballots must be requested by Tuesday before 5 p.m. They can be requested from the Virginia Department of Elections’ citizen portal.
Voters can choose Democratic and Republican candidates for a variety of offices, including for the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. There also will be a variety of local races.
To find out who is on the local ballots, the elections department has created an online lookup tool.
Don’t forget that Virginia voters must bring a photo ID such as a valid driver’s license or identification card to the polls.
