Your Super Tuesday Virginia Voters’ Guide

by | Feb 29, 2016 | Government

Two Democrats and five Republicans are still in the running for their party’s 2016 presidential nomination as of Super Tuesday — March 1, 2016.

The Candidates, As Listed on the Virginia Ballot
The Virginia State Board of Elections (SBE) determined by random drawing the order in which candidates will appear on the ballots.

Several candidates dropped out of the race after the ballots had been printed, so their names will still be on the ballot. The candidates still running are highlighted in the following lists.

2016 Democratic Presidential Primary ballot order:
Hillary Clinton
Martin O’Malley
Bernie Sanders
(O’Malley dropped out of the race after the ballots had been printed.)

2016 Republican Presidential Primary ballot order:
Marco Rubio
Lindsey Graham
Ben Carson
Rand Paul
Mike Huckabee
Ted Cruz
Donald Trump
Jim Gilmore
Chris Christie
Jeb Bush
Rick Santorum
John Kasich
Carly Fiorina
(Graham, Paul, Huckabee, Gilmore, Christie, Bush, Santorum and Fiorina dropped out after the ballots had been printed.)

Virginia is an Open Primary State
Virginia has an “open” primary, which means you don’t have to be registered with a particular political party to vote in that party’s primary.

However, Virginia law allows you to vote in only one political party primary election when multiple political party primary elections are held on the same day — as on March 1, 2016.

Each primary — Democrat and Republican — has a separate ballot listing different candidates. When you arrive at your polling location, you will need to indicate which ballot you want.

Your Voter Status
You can check your registration status at the Virginia Voter Registration webpage.

Polling Places
Polls in Virginia are open 6 a.m. – 7 p.m. on Super Tuesday.

Find out where you vote by inputting your address into the Virginia Polling Places webpage.

Photo ID Required
Virginia requires voters to present photo identification before voting. Any valid government issued ID with your photo is acceptable, including a driver’s license, DMV ID card, passport, or military ID. Employer issued ID’s are acceptable if they include your photo. A complete list of acceptable photo ID’s is available at the Department of Elections web site: http://elections.virginia.gov/registration/photo-ids-required-to-vote/

If you don’t have a photo ID, you may obtain a voter photo ID from your local registrar’s office. Your old voter registration card that does not include a photo will no longer be accepted.
