June 23, 2020 Primary

The Republican Party will hold a primary on June 23, 2020, to select nominees for the U.S. Senate and a Member of the U.S. House of Representatives from Virginia’s Second Congressional District. The Constitution of Virginia requires that voters be registered in the precinct in which they live in order to be qualified to vote. If you are not already registered to vote—or you need to update your registration information—the deadline to register or update your information is Tuesday, May 26, 2020. Virginia does not have party registration. Voters may vote in any primary regardless of their partisan affiliation.

On Primary Day, June 23, all regular York County polling places will be open from 6 a.m. until 7 p.m. If you are in line at 7 p.m., you are still able to vote. Do not get out of line if you are in line at 7 p.m. 

Voter Registration
The Constitution of Virginia requires that voters be registered in the precinct in which they live in order to be qualified to vote. The deadline to register to vote in the election, or to update one’s registration information in time for the election, is Tuesday, May 26, 2020.

Qualified residents who will be at least 18 years of age on or before November 3, 2020, may register and vote. Voters who are members of the uniformed services or who are overseas may visit the website of the Department of Elections for information on how to ensure they are able to vote in this election.

 There are three ways citizens can register or update their voter registration information:

  1. Citizens can register to vote and check their voter registration information online
