Ralph Northam wins Democratic nomination for governor

Meanwhile, if Perriello or Northam win, it will be almost impossible for Virginia's voters to elect a Democratic House of Delegates - even if a majority of those voters cast a ballot for a Democratic candidate.

Polls open at 6 a.m EDT (1000 GMT) and close at 7 p.m. EDT (2300 GMT).

Asked if he would support Gillespie in the general election, Smith said: "At most, I will vote for him". Trump's approval among Virginians was at just 36 percent in an April Quinnipiac University Poll, and last November he lost the state by six points. Valid forms of identification include a driver's license, passport or student ID. If you don't have it with you, you'll get a provisional ballot, or you can apply for a free photo ID at your voter registration office. Clinton carried the state by 6 points a year ago, and Trump's approval rating was at just 36 percent in a Quinnipiac University Poll in April. The official Fairfax County election Twitter account reported low turnout as of 2 p.m., with only 8.6 percent of registered voters having cast their ballots. The 57-year-old Northam has won Virginia's three largest population centers, and fended off a challenge from former Congressman Tom Perriello.

Here is a brief summary of each candidate's qualifications. She says that Perriello is "really someone who is going to make changes to make this economy work better for hardworking families".

At the outset of the campaign, Perriello drew headlines for his full-throated assault on Trump, an apparent effort to nationalize the race and coalesce the growing resistance to the incoming administration's controversial agenda.

The IBEW said that they chose to endorse Perriello after he became the only candidate in the race the race to call for free two-year community college and repealing the state's "right-to-work" law, which allows workers to benefit from union contracts without paying dues to those unions.

We're joining Senator Bernie Sanders and endorsing Tom for his bold stand against two fracked natural gas pipelines, the Atlantic Coast pipeline and the Mountain Valley pipeline.

Attorney General Sessions to talk publicly to US Senate panel
Trump's personal lawyer also challenged Comey's account, saying the president never asked for the investigation to be dropped. Sessions could be asked about that part of Comey's testimony, as well as his role in Comey's firing last month .

"We want you to be part of our effort", Gillespie said, adding that Virginia can not afford another four years with a Democrat as governor.

Gillespie is backed by most of the state party establishment and has focused on pocketbook issues, including proposing a modest cut to the state's income tax rate.

The three-way Republican primary remained too close to call, with ardent Trump supporter Corey Stewart doing surprising well against former Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie. An global trade attorney, he has vowed to protect Confederate monuments such as statues of Robert E. Lee and Stonewall Jackson. Frank Wagner, a senator in the commonwealth's legislature, trailed in third place. A top priority for him is infrastructure development, including transportation projects to create jobs and reduce traffic congestion in Virginia.

The state of Virginia chose its Republican and Democratic candidates Tuesday to replace outgoing Gov.

Both parties have a three-way primary for lieutenant governor, a largely ceremonial position that's often a stepping stone to higher office. Bryce Reeves and 84th District Delegate Glenn Davis.

The certified winners of Tuesday's primary will go on to the general election on November 7, which will include Libertarian candidate Cliff Hyra.

Any voting questions may be directed to Registrar Harding at 476-3322.
