Early voting for the Virginia Democratic primary ends Saturday, Election Day is Tuesday
PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) – Polling day for the Virginia primary elections is approaching next week.
If you plan vote early, you only have until Saturday 5 June 5 p.m.
Democrats will choose who they want to appoint governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general. Statewide, Democrats can also vote on certain local races and delegate seats.
Republicans have already chosen their candidates for governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general by convention, appointing Glenn Youngkin, Winsome E. Sears and Jason Miyares respectively.
The biggest prize to be won is the nomination for governor. A CNU Wason Center survey April shows that former Gov. Terry McAuliffe will likely get the most votes, with nearly half of voters saying they will vote for him.
In the races for lieutenant governor and attorney general, many people are still undecided. Delegate Sam Rasoul appears to be the Lieutenant Governor’s favorite. Outgoing Attorney General Mark Herring also has the edge over Norfolk delegate Jay Jones, though Jones has key backing from Gov. Ralph Northam.
Here are some important dates to remember:
