Virginia voter registration deadline approaches for upcoming presidential primary

Virginia Politics

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — The registration deadline for Virginians who wish to vote in the upcoming Democratic Primary is February 10.

You can register in-person at the Voter Registration & Elections Office or at the Department of Motor Vehicles, as well as online.

  • By mail: Applications must be postmarked by February 10.
  • In-person: Applications must be submitted by 5 p.m. February 10.
  • Online: Applications must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. February 10.

The primary this year is on March 3, better known as “Super Tuesday.” It is called this because several other states have their Democratic Primary on the same day, including Texas and California, the two most populous states.

Virginia is unique because it has an open primary, in which voters do not have to formally declare an affiliation with a political party when they go to register to vote.
