What is a Dual Primary Election?

A dual primary is an election held for the purpose of selecting a candidate to represent a political party in the November Election for a particular office.  Voters decide who will be the nominee of the political party.  In a Dual Primary, the parties’ primaries are held on the same day.  Virginia law permits a voter to vote in either primary, but in only one of the primaries held on the same day.  (§ 24.2-530)

When you go to your polling place on Election Day with your photo ID you will be asked, “In which party’s primary do you wish to vote?”

Absentee ballots will be available starting Friday, April 27, 2018.
