On Tuesday, June 11, primary elections will be held for the purpose of nominating candidates for the Democratic Party for the offices of Governor, Lieutenant Governor and Attorney General and for the Republican Party for the office of House of Delegate (Districts 22 and 23). Should only one candidate qualify for the primary ballot in any office, then no primary for that office will be held.
Absent military and overseas citizens eligible to vote in Virginia may do so using the Federal Post Card Application to request ballots and the Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot to vote in any election in which time may be insufficient to return a voted official ballot.
The State Board of Elections’ website, www.sbe.virginia.gov
, provides detailed instructions and links to the Federal Voting Assistance Plan for federal forms which can be completed online. The Federal Post Card Application can be faxed or emailed as a scanned attachment to request an official ballot. However, the voted Federal Write-In Absentee ballot must be witnessed and mailed to the appropriate local election official to be counted.
