If you’re a Richmonder, you may live in a district that gets to vote this Tuesday! Exercise that old civic duty and celebrate your rights by voting in the Democratic Primary for the 10th and 16th State Senate districts and the 69th and 74th House of Delegates districts. No dice for those of you in the city limits trying to primary it up in a Republican way this go around.

“Winners” will be on the real-deal ballot, representing the Democratic Party, in November.

Not sure which district you’re in?

Gonna be out of town or otherwise unavailable?

You still have a little time to go apply in person for an absentee ballot (I know! I’m as shocked as you are!). Through Saturday, go to the Registrar’s Office at City Hall (Room 105) and state your case.

Forgot to register to vote?

Can’t help you there–as far as this election goes, anyway. The deadline was May 18th, but go ahead and do it online now so that you won’t have to worry about it in the fall.

Wondering who the heck to vote for?
