CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VA — To help curb the spread of COVID-19, the Chesterfield County General Registrar’s office is strongly encouraging its registered voters to seek an absentee by mail ballot for the June Democratic and Republican Primary Elections.
Voters may choose reason code "2A My disability or illness" to vote absentee in the elections, per Governor Ralph Northam’s executive order to change the June primary elections because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Chesterfield County Electoral Board will conduct a Democratic Party Primary Election on Tuesday, June 23 to nominate candidates for the 4th Congressional District and a Republican Party Primary Election to nominate candidates for U.S. Senate.
While absentee voting begins Friday, May 8, the last day to request an absentee ballot through the mail is Tuesday, June 16. All requests for absentee ballots, including those being submitted by mail, fax or email, must be received by the Registrar’s Office at 9848 Lori Road, 23832 (in Court Square) by 5 p.m.
Voters also can submit an absentee application online at https://www.elections.virginia.gov/ or call the Registrar’s Office at (804) 748-1471 to have an application mailed. Voters also can fax their application to (804) 751-0822.

All completed absentee ballots must be received by the Registrar’s Office by 7 p.m. on Election Day (June 23).
While state and local election officials are encouraging voters to seek an absentee by mail ballot because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, voters planning to vote in person may continue to do so.
