Originally scheduled for June 9, Virginia’s Primary Elections were moved to June 23 due to the Covid-19 outbreak. The primary elections will determine Virginia’s Republican nominee to run for the U.S. Senate against Democratic incumbent Sen. Mark Warner. Other areas of Virginia will have primaries for House of Representatives races–in the LWV CVA area, this includes the 5th Congressional Democratic Primary race. In primary elections, you select either a Republican or Democratic ballot. What’s on your ballot? Click on the Democrat and Republican primary ballots June-2020-Primary-Candidates-List-(4)-1.
Voters can check with their own registrar for information about the upcoming June 23 Primaries. The League of Women Voters strongly encourages voters to VOTE ABSENTEE BY MAIL.

ABSENTEE VOTING INFORMATION: You must first obtain an application for a Primary Ballot! You can do this by calling your local Registrar’s office. Phone Numbers for area registrars:
An application will be sent to you in the mail. Upon sending back the application to your local registrar’s office, you will receive a ballot–for the June 23 Primaries, you will state on your application whether you would prefer a Democratic or Republican ballot. June 16 is the deadline to apply for an Absentee Ballot.
Or, voters may submit an absentee ballot application online by going directly to the Department of Elections website: www.elections.virginia.gov (or call 804 864-8901 or 800 552-9745, 8 am to 5 pm weekdays). Due to COVID-19, it is strongly recommended that voters request a mailed absentee ballot using reason code 2A, “My disability or illness,” on the application. Registrars will also accept applications via regular mail and email: see links above to contact your local Registrar to request a Primary Ballot Application.
Please note that your ballot no longer needs to be observed and signed by a witness. As you may know, the ACLU, representing LWV-VA and individuals for whom the witness signature requirement presents a barrier to voting, has successfully asked for waiver of the witness signature during the COVID-19 crisis. We want everyone to be able to exercise their right to vote safely.
