  • Our County will hold a June 23, 2020 DUAL Primary Election.  Absentee voting begins May 8, 2020. Anyone can vote - we are not a party affiliated State. Stay tuned to this website, The Free Lance Star and our Facebook page, Spotsylvania Votes for additional information. If you wish to vote, please consider wearing a mask and listen to instructions from our election officials. 
  • Sample Ballots for the June 23rd Primary are below.  Since this is a Dual Primary for most of our County (depends on your congressional district), there are three ballot styles: Republican Primary is Statewide, so all precincts can vote - 1st and 7th congressional district.  The Democratic Primary is ONLY in the 1st congressional district.
  • Absentee Voting: see helpful links to the left. You can apply online, in-person (forms outside office) or by mail/email/fax. You then vote either in-person with our staff or through the mail. (Voted ballots may be dropped off to our office or in the secure drop box outside our main door instead of returning by mail.Drop box is located under a security camera as well.)
