Frequently Asked Questions

Why is There only a Democratic Primary in Both Fairfax County and Fairfax City? What Gives?

In Fairfax County, there are only Democratic Primaries this year. They will be on June 11th.

Q: How can I change my party affiliation to vote in the Democratic Primary?

You can’t! We don’t register by political party in Virginia. All primaries are open.

Q: What is an Open Primary?

Virginia is an Open Primary state which means that any registered voter in Virginia can vote in either a Democratic or Republican primary.

Q: Where are the School Board Candidates? I thought that 2019 had all the state and local elections?

A: That’s true! 2019 is the year for state and local elections in Fairfax County (although, confusingly, not in Fairfax City). But School Board Candidates run as independents, so the positions of school board NEVER appear on primary ballots in Virginia.

Q: I looked at VOTE411.org, but didn’t find much. What’s up with that?

A: Since the League usually does not deal with primaries, VOTE411.org does not have a Voters’ Guide. You can still use it to register to vote, but it’s not as helpful as it will be for the General Election.
