HISTORIC TRIANGLE — Virginia’s 2024 Presidential Primary is Tuesday, March 5 — “Super Tuesday” — where 15 states and one territory will vote.

The Constitution of Virginia requires that voters be registered in the precinct in which they live in order to be qualified to vote. Virginia allows same-day registration, meaning eligible voters can register at any time, up to and including Election Day, but same-day registrants will be required to vote a provisional ballot. Registered voters are eligible to vote in either the Democratic or Republican primaries.

Election Day hours are from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. at every polling place in Virginia. If you are in line at 7 p.m., you are still able to vote; do not get out of line.
