Calling of a Primary

The calling of a primary as a party’s method of nomination does not automatically mean that a primary will be held. In accordance with VA Code Section 24.2-526, a primary is only held when multiple party candidates qualify for the primary. The candidate filing window for the primary begins at noon on March 10, 2014 and runs through March 27, 2014 at 5pm (24.2-522). Political party chairs are given until April 1, 2014 at 5pm to certify the qualified primary candidates (24.2-527). The State Board will issue an email notice on April 2, 2014 as to where primaries will be held.
