Voters head to polls

Published 9:55 pm Monday, June 12, 2017

Virginia voters will go to the polls Tuesday to vote in primary elections, selecting candidates for both parties for governor and lieutenant governor.

In addition to the statewide races, voters in many House of Delegates districts will also vote in party primaries. Voters in the 64th District, which encompasses much of the southwestern part of the city, will choose from three candidates on the Democratic ballot and two candidates on the Republican ballot. Other House districts in Suffolk do not feature primaries, but all Suffolk voters are able to choose candidates for governor and lieutenant governor.

Voters will have to tell poll workers whether they want a Democratic or Republican ballot and may vote in only one of the primaries.
