Super Tuesday vote in Virginia March 3 / February 26, 2020
Virginia is one of 14 states along with American Samoa that will vote Tuesday, March 3 in the Super Tuesday presidential primaries.

In Virginia, a total of 124 delegates to the Democratic National Convention are up for grabs — 99 will be pledged delegates, and they will be allocated based on the results of the primary ballot.

The Democratic National Convention takes place July 13-16 in Milwaukee, Wis.

Tuesday’s ballot lists eight candidates still active in the race for the Democratic nomination, along with a half-dozen others who have dropped out since qualifying for the Virginia primary. Active candidates are Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Joseph Biden, Amy Klobuchar, Tulsi Gabbard, Pete Buttigieg, Tom Steyer, and Michael Bloomberg.

Those who have exited the race but remain listed on the ballot are Cory Booker, Julian Castro, Marianne Williamson, Michael Bennet, Deval Patrick and Andrew Yang.

As an open primary state, anyone qualified to vote — Democratic, Republican or independent — can take part in Tuesday’s Democratic primary. No write-in ballots will be accepted.

In-person absentee voting in Virginia ends on Saturday.

In person absentee voting can be done during regular business hours at the registrar’s office at 439 Madison Street, Boydton. Office hours are 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday and on Saturday, Feb. 29 from 8 a.m.-4 p.m.

On March 3, polls open at 6 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. The polling location for Precinct 601 is the only one to have changed. People in Precinct 601 in the Baskerville area will now vote at the Sharon Baptist Church at 27250 Highway 58 near South Hill. The precinct was previously located at the United Country Club at 24 West Cross Road, Baskerville.

With only token opposition to Donald Trump as the Republican nominee for a second term, Virginia Republicans will conduct their delegate selection process at a state party convention at a later date.

When you show up to the polls, you will need to present a photo ID to vote in person. Acceptable forms of ID include:

» Virginia driver’s license

» Virginia DMV-issued photo ID

» United States passport

» Employer-issued photo ID

» Virginia Voter Photo ID card

» Other U.S. or Virginia government-issued photo ID

» Student photo ID issued by a school, college or university located in Virginia

» Tribal enrollment or other tribal photo ID

If you show up to vote and don’t have ID, you can still vote using a provisional ballot.
