Election Official Information

2016 March 1, Presidential Primary
 

March 1st Primary Election is a dual primary which is actually two primary elections conducted concurrently. For All Precincts in a dual primary, officers of election must Determine in which primary election the voter wishes to vote by asking the voter:


“Do you wish to vote in the Democratic Party Primary?
OR
“Do you wish to vote in the Republican Party Primary?”

  • The voter must somehow indicate their choice of primary to the pollbook officer(s). The officer must confirm that he or she heard the choice correctly. (§§ 24.2-529 — 24.2-531, 24.2-643(B))
  • All persons qualified to vote may vote in either primary. (§ 24.2-530)
  • But, the voter may not vote in both primaries held on the same date, even if the desire is to vote for candidates running for different offices. (§ 24.2-530)
  • No voter may be challenged on their choice of a primary. (§ 24.2-530)

FAQ Help:
The two primaries are actually two separate elections. (§§ 24.2-529 — 24.2-532)

The choice to vote in a party’s primary does not mean that the voter will be “registered” with that party.

Virginia does not have “party registration.” (§§ 24.2-101, 24.2-418)
