June, 13 2017 Primary Elections
On June 13, 2017 Alexandria will hold Democratic and Republican Primary Elections.
- The Democratic Party has called for a Primary to nominate candidates for the offices of Governor, Lt. Governor, Attorney General, Members of the House of Delegates (45th and 46th Districts), Commonwealth's Attorney and Sheriff.
- The Republican Party has called for a Primary to nominate candidates for the offices of Governor, Lt. Governor, and Attorney General. The Party will nominate candidates for House of Delegates (45th and 46th Districts), Commonwealth's Attorney and Sheriff via a caucus.
Should only one candidate qualify for the Primary ballot in any office, then no Primary for that office will be held. The candidate filing deadline for the Primary is March 30. Sample ballots will be posted in early April.
In Virginia, voters do not register by political party. They may vote in either the Democratic or Republican Primary, but not both.
