WHY ARE YOU BEING ASKED ABOUT PRIMARY BALLOTS?
Virginia is an open primary state meaning voters do not register by party. If you would like to vote in primary elections, you must indicate which primary ballots you would like to receive. If you are not sure which primary you would like to vote in, you can complete an application to request a ballot for a specific primary in advance of the election.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER YOU APPLY:
After you apply, you will receive a letter notifying you that you have been placed on this list. You will receive ballots approximately 45 days before an election.
WHEN YOU WILL RECEIVE YOUR MAIL BALLOT:
You will receive a mail ballot approximately 45 days in advance of an election.
WHAT DO I DO IF YOU DID NOT RECEIVE YOUR BALLOT:
Call the Voter Registration Office at 804-469-4500, option 7.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU MOVE:
If you move within the County, ballots will be sent to the new residence address automatically. If you move elsewhere in Virginia, you will need to submit a new application to your new jurisdiction.
TEMPORARILY CHANGE FOR A SINGLE ELECTION:
If you need a ballot sent to a different address for a single election, you can complete a Virginia Permanent Absentee Voter Single Election Change Form and return it by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail to Dinwiddie Voter Registration Office, PO Box 365, Dinwiddie, VA 23841.
