The deadline to register to vote in Virginia’s June 13 Democratic or Republican Primary Election is Monday, May 22. In Alexandria, the June ballots each include contests for Governor and Lt. Governor. Virginia voters do not register by political party and may vote in either primary but not both.

Checking Registration

If you have recently moved or updated your registration since the last time you voted, please make sure you are registered at your current address. You may check your registration at https://vote.elections.virginia.gov or by contacting voters@alexandriava.gov or 703.746.4050.
