Why are the Parties listed in that order?

The order is decided by random drawing, with the two major parties listed before the other recognized parties; start reading at line 57 of the State Board of Elections Minutes for details of this year's process. Virginia Code §24.2-613.B provides that political party identification be shown on the ballot ONLY for federal, statewide, and General Assembly candidates. It does not appear on the ballot for any other candidate.

Searchable Voter Information Database

The most comprehensive source for an individual's voting information is found in the Virginia State Board of Elections' searchable database. If you are a registered voter, you can enter your information into this form and find your registration status, the Districts in which you reside, your polling location, and your Voter Registrar's contact information.

What are Districts?

Each voter is in several different districts:

Federal Elections
Federal Congressional District, for US House of Representatives elections. All of Montgomery and Floyd Counties are in the Virginia's 9th Congressional district. There are no "districts" for the US Senate; everyone in the state votes on the same race.

State Elections
State Senate: Floyd is in the Virginia 7th Senate District. Montgomery County residents are in either the 4th or 5th District.
House of Delegates: Floyd is in the Virginia 47th House of Delegates District. Montgomery County residents are in the 41st or 42nd District.

County / Local Elections
Counties are also divided into districts which are the basis for certain races, such as School Board Members or Board of Supervisor elections. Town residents vote for County and Town races when they occur.
