Early voting is underway in Pittsylvania County for the Republican and Democratic U.S. Presidential Primaries through March 2.
In Virginia, individuals can vote in either the Republican or Democratic primary, but not both. The primaries are used by both parties to select their nominees for the U.S. Presidential election in November.
Early voting is available Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Elections and Training Center, 18 Depot Street in Chatham. Early voting is also available on Saturday, February 24 and Saturday March 2, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Elections and Training Center.
Election Day for the Presidential Primaries is Tuesday, March 5 and polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Pittsylvania County Schools will be in session on March 5, so voters whose precinct is in a school are advised to look for signage indicating where voting will take place within the school building.
Additionally, anyone who will be 18 years of age on or before the November 5, 2024, General Election, may register now and vote in any intervening Primary Election. This means that those who were born on or before 11/5/2006 may register and vote in this Presidential Primary.
“This will be an exciting time and there may be many questions about the election process this year. Please know that I remain here as a resource should anyone have any questions,” said Pittsylvania County Voter Registrar Shani Shorter.
