Tuesday, March 3, Virginians will go to the polls to select the Democratic nominee for the 2020 Presidential Election.
Here are 4 things to know if you plan to vote:
Any registered voter can vote
Virginia is an open primary state—meaning we do not register by political party. Only the Democratic Party will be holding a primary on March 3. The Republican Party of Virginia will select their nominee at a state convention in May.
All regular polling places are open
Polls are open 6 a.m.–7 p.m.
If you are in line by 7 p.m. you will be allowed to vote.
Don’t forget your photo ID
You must show an acceptable photo ID to vote. Commonly used identifications include, a Virginia driver’s license, U.S. passport, and employer IDs. If you do not have an acceptable form of identification, you can have a free one made up through noon on Friday, March 6, at 2100 Clarendon Blvd, Ste 320.
