The Republicans have already tapped Glenn Youngkin, a political newcomer with a ton of cash as the GOP gubernatorial candidate. Today it’s the Democrat’s turn to pick their candidate for Governor and other officials.
Five candidates are competing for the nomination as governor in Tuesday’s primary, with former Gov. Terry McAuliffe seen as the heavy favorite. McAuliffe’s opponents include state Sen. Jennifer McClellan and former Del. Jennifer Carroll Foy.
Polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. If you are in line at 7 p.m., you will get to vote. Voters heading to the polls on Tuesday are strongly encouraged to wear a mask, although it is not required.
