Albemarle County gears up for June primary election

By  | 

ALBEMARLE COUNTY, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- The June primary election is quickly approaching and the Albemarle County Registrar's Office said your ballot will look different depending on where you live.

Jake Washburne, the general registrar for Albemarle County, said every ballot will have the opportunity to vote for County Sheriff.

Some ballots will have other races too, like for the 57th District House of Delegates seat and the 17th District State Senate seat.

Washburne said there are eight different ballots total.

Four of the county's 30 precincts will be split into two ballots because of different house and senate districts.

"We have four precincts where either the state senate district line or the house of delegates district line cuts the precinct in half, so all in all we have eight different ballots," Washburne said.

He said state law prohibits anyone from voting on both a Republican and Democratic ballot.

Election day is on June 11. You can vote from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. at your local precinct.
