Virginia Primaries: Where to Vote, Candidate Info and More Coverage

Fredericksburg Election Guide: Statewide Democrats and local Republicans head to the polls Tuesday, June 11.

Here’s a rundown of what you need to know for the election:

The Virginia primaries will be held on Tuesday, June 11. Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Lieutenant Governor, Democrat Nomination

State Sen. Ralph Northam (D-Norfolk) will face off against Aneesh Chopra, the first U.S. chief technology officer under President Barack Obama.

Although Chopra lacks Northam’s veteran experience in public office, he has more financial support behind him, soundly beating Northam in the most recentfundraising period.

The victor in Tuesday’s primary will share a ticket with Terry McAuliffe, former chairman of the Democratic Party and Virginia’s Democratic gubernatorial candidate.

Attorney General, Democrat Nomination

State Sen. Mark Herring (D-Loudoun) is going up against Justin Fairfax, a former federal prosecutor who worked to fight drug and human trafficking in Alexandria.

Like Northam, Herring has experience as an advantage in the race, but Fairfax’s history as a prosecutor has won him looks from big players, including a Washington Post endorsement.
