Primary Elections for 2022

Election Day 2022 is November 8, but before we get there, there are primary elections as well! Check the chart below for your state's primary date as well as the registration deadline. Make sure you visit VoteFromAbroad.org as soon as possible to register to vote and/or request your ballots.

(Requesting your ballot now, before the primary deadline, will also ensure that you are sent ballots for the general election as well as any runoff or special elections this year.)
