Where to Vote

How to Vote

When voting in-person, you will be asked to provide an acceptable form of photo identification (photo ID) at the polls.

Virginia law allows you to vote in only one political party primary election when multiple political party primary elections are held on the same day (Va Code § 24.2-530). Each primary has a separate ballot listing different candidates. The voter must indicate which ballot he would like to receive.
