Important Changes to Voting Due to the Pandemic
How and when to vote in this year's elections is more complicated than ever, thanks to the pandemic and the changes that have been made in voting because of it. Here are some changes you should know about.
The primaries for November's election have been moved to June 23. Absentee voting is available to ALL voters due to the public health crisis. We strongly encourage you to stay safe and vote absentee.
Though your ballot states you have to have a witness when you vote absentee, that requirement is waived during the June primary to ensure social distancing.
June 23--Democratic Primary for 1st Congressional District.
Qasim Rashid and Vangie Williams are vying for the Democratic nomination in the 1st Congressional District. The 1st Congressional District generally covers the northern 2/3 of James City County.
Tuesday, June 16 - This is the last day to request an absentee ballot be mailed to you. You may fax or email your application as an attachment, or send it by postal mail to the elections office. Applications must be received by 5:00 p.m. on June 16.
Saturday, June 20 - This is the last day to vote an absentee ballot in person at 5300 Palmer Lane, Williamsburg, VA 23188. The office will be open 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. A photo ID is required.
We won't be staffing the polls on Election Day in June. That's a decision we hate to have to make, but we are erring on the side of caution and the health and safety of our members.
THERE IS NO DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY IN THE 2ND CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT.
There is no Democratic primary in the 2nd Congressional District because both Congresswoman Elaine Luria and Senator Mark Warner do not have primary opponents. Democrats living in the 2nd CD don't vote in June. The 2nd Congressional District includes all of the City of Williamsburg (voting locations are normally Williamsburg Methodist Church and the Community Building) and certain portions of James City County.
Not sure if you are in the 1st or 2nd Congressional Districts? Click here and put in your address. It will give you all of your legislative representatives and district numbers.
Happy Hour with Team Luria
