Elections

The Office of Elections is committed to providing each citizen of Roanoke County with the opportunity to exercise his or her right to vote in an efficient and equitable manner in accordance with federal and state election laws.

Roanoke County will be holding a Democratic Presidential Primary on Tuesday, March 3, 2020.

The Democratic Party is the only party holding a Presidential Primary in Virginia. The Republican Party chose to select delegates to their national convention at a state convention. Because Virginia doesn’t require voters to state their party when registering, any registered Virginia voter can cast a ballot in the Democratic Presidential Primary.
