Terry McAuliffe is the presumptive nominee for Governor, but the race is on for the nomination for Lieutenant Governor and Attorney General. Ralph Northam and Aneesh Chopra are battling it out for Lt. Governor, while voters will decide between Mark Herring and Justin Fairfax for Attorney General.
Virginia has an open primary system, meaning any qualified voter can vote in the Democratic primary. This is because Virginians don’t identify a party when they register, but they must choose between voting in the Democratic or Republican primary, not both. There is still time to apply for an absentee ballot if you can’t make it to the polls, the deadline is June 4th by mail and June 8th in person. Virginia only allows absentee voting with an approved excuse.
Polls will be open 6am to 7pm June 11th.
