Democratic Primary: what you need to know

A Democratic Primary Election will be held on June 8, 2021 and early voting begins on April 23. The last day to register to vote in the June 8 Primary is Monday, May 17.

Click the links to see the sample ballots for James City County and Williamsburg. Both ballots contain the names of Democratic candidates for the offices of Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and Attorney General. Please note that the WJCC Dems are prohibited by the Virginia Democratic Party Plan from endorsing candidates in contested primaries.

The ballots have no House of Delegates candidates because the candidates who are running to represent James City County and Williamsburg — Mike Mullin in the 93rd District and Dr. Mark Downey in the 96th District — do not have primary opponents.

There will be no Republican Primary in June because the Republican Party has chosen to nominate its candidates via a convention.

Early voting begins on Friday, April 23.

Join Neighbors United for Change

Give some thought to joining NEIGHBORS UNITED FOR CHANGE. Organizing at the neighborhood level helps us recruit volunteers and communicate about important issues neighbor-to-neighbor and friend-to-friend. Want to organize an interest group you’re involved with, or a group of your friends? That works too. Or if you’re already a part of an existing neighborhood group, we’d love to work with you.
