Primary Information

A primary is an election administered by the state for the political parties. It is up to the political parties to determine their method of nominating candidates to appear on the November General Election ballot.  If a primary is chosen, it is normally held on the third Tuesday in June.  In Presidential years, the primary to choose presidential candidates is held in March (Super Tuesday). All registered voters in Virginia are eligible to participate in any party primary as Virginia does not register by party.  Voters are allowed to vote in only one primary on the same day per Code of Virginia § 24.2-530. If both parties hold a primary on the same day (called a dual primary), voters must indicate which primary they wish to participate in when checking into the precinct. Each primary, even if held on the same day, is an individual election with separate ballots. Thus the reason for indicating which party's primary you wish to participate in.

Becoming a Candidate

Voters wishing to become a candidate must follow instructions on the Virginia Department of Elections website and in the candidate bulletin for the desired office and election.  Candidate bulletins include filing information, deadlines, and campaign finance requirements.  Candidate information, including links to the necessary forms, can be found here.
