Eligibility to Vote

All U.S. citizen residents of Virginia aged 18 years or older, or who will be 18 by the next general election, are eligible to register to vote, provided they have not been convicted of a felony or judged by a court as mentally incapacitated.

If you're already registered to vote at your current address and haven't moved, your registration is still valid and you don't need to do anything.

Remember in Virginia we do not register to vote by political party, so this information doesn't appear on your registration record. This means that any registered voter is eligible to vote in any primary election administered by the Office of Elections.

If both the Democratic and Republican parties hold primaries on the same day, voters must choose which party ballot they wish to vote.
