ELECTIONS IN VIRGINIA – YEARLY

  • Virginia has a General Election every year on the Tuesday following the first Monday in November
  • Federal offices are elected in even-numbered years
  • State and Local offices are elected in odd-numbered years
  • If primaries are called by the political parties, they are held on the second Tuesday in June.

Article One of the United States Constitution requires that any election for the U.S. President must occur on a single day throughout the country; elections for Congressional offices, however, can be held at different times. Congressional and presidential elections take place simultaneously every four years, and the intervening Congressional elections, which take place every two years, are called Midterm elections.


VOTER REGISTRATION

You may register to vote year-round except during the 21 days prior to a General or Primary election, 13 days prior to a Special election, or 6 days prior to a Special election called by the Governor (Code of Virginia §§ 24.2-416 – updated 1.1.2010). If you are already registered at your current address, you do not have to register again.

The registration deadline for the 2016 election is October 17, 2016.
