The City of Fredericksburg will be having a Republican Primary June 21, 2022.

Sample Ballot

As a result of the 2020 Census, Virginia conducted redistricting that redrew the statewide voting maps. Our Congressional line changed from Congressional District 1 to Congressional District 7. Rob Wittman will continue to be our representative until the November Election at which time we will then have a new Congressional Representative. The 7th Congressional District is currently held by Abigail Spanberger. The June 21 Republican Primary will decide who will be on the ballot to run against Ms. Spanberger in the November 8th General Election.

Early in-person voting will start May 6th and run until June 18th. Early Voting will be conducted in the Registrar's Office located on the 5th floor of Executive Plaza, 601 Caroline Street.
