HISTORIC TRIANGLE — Early, in-person voting for the June primaries begins Friday, April 23 in Virginia.

The Virginia Department of Elections announced that early, in-person voting at the registrar’s office begins Friday, April 23 and lasts through June 5. Residents should check with the registrar’s office for hours prior to their arrival.

The final day for voting will be June 8. Polling places will be open from 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Those who are in line at 7 p.m. will still be able to vote that day.

In-person voters can find their polling places online.

The Democratic party will choose its nominees for governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general. Republicans will hold a convention to pick their candidates for each of these offices on May 8.

Voters do not have to be a registered Democrat or Republican to participate, as Virginia does not have party registration.

Any registered voters can request an absentee ballot, in-person or by mail. Voters have until Friday, May 28 at 5 p.m. to submit the request.
