What is a Dual Primary Election?
A dual primary is an election held for the purpose of selecting a candidate to represent a political party in the November Election for a particular office. Voters decide who will be the nominee of the political party. In a Dual Primary, the parties’ primaries are held on the same day. Virginia law permits a voter to vote in either primary, but in only one of the primaries held on the same day. (§ 24.2-530)
When you go to your polling place on Election Day with your photo ID you will be asked:
“In which party’s primary do you wish to vote?”
