The next election in the City of Richmond will be on Tuesday, June 11, 2019. There will be a Democratic Party Primary for the 10th and 16th state Senate districts. There will be a Republican Party Primary in the 68th House of Delegates district. In precincts where both a Democratic Party Primary and a Republican Party Primary is held, voters will have to choose in which primary that they wish to participate. The purpose of this election is to nominate candidates for offices that will be on the ballot in November. Only precincts in those districts will be able to participate in this election. Other Primary elections previously ordered will not be held as only one candidate filed for those primaries. In those cases, the single candidate that filed will become the party's nominee and will have their name appear on the ballot in the November general election.

VOTERS SHOULD CHECK THEIR HOUSE OF DELEGATES DISTRICT . A recent court order changed the boundaries for some districts. You can check your voter registration and election districts online at
