McAuliffe votes in Virginia's primary election

Elections are a form of questions.

Polls in Tuesday's primary races are open until 7 p.m. "We are more purplish".

Gillespie emphasized to supporters he would be a governor "for all Virginians", and he criticized the Democratic candidates for what he termed trying to divide Virginians. As the mother of three young children, I know that if Tom is elected governor, he will live up to his promise of making Virginia a more inclusive state that provides children of all races and backgrounds equal opportunity to succeed.

What that means is a very small minority of voters will set the direction for everyone else on Tuesday.

Virginia is an open primary state, meaning any voter can request either a Democratic or Republican ballot, but not both. A little more than 319,000 Democrats turned out in a three-way primary in 2009. Only 738 people voted, meaning it took just 358 people to oust a sitting supervisor that year. "For someone with two Yale degrees, who was a member of Congress and a senior diplomat, to be seen as anti-establishment shows how establishment the party has become", he said, over a glass of wine ahead of his town hall performance.

All 100 House seats are up for election this year.

The 48-year-old surgical assistant at a local hospital, who also sells life insurance, voted for Trump and remains steadfast in his support.

Acceptable forms of valid identification include Virginia driver's license, Virginia DMV-issued photo I.D., United States passport, employer-issued photo I.D., student photo I.D. issued by school, college or university located in Virginia, other US or Virginia government-issued photo I.D., tribal enrollment or other tribal photo I.D. and Virginia voter photo I.D. card, according to the Virginia Department of Elections website.

GONYEA: If Northam has the backing of the establishment in the state, Perriello is running as the outsider, one who will mobilize grassroots support.

The weekend airwaves were filled with messages promoting the candidates for the other two offices, and how much you heard about the respective office-seekers may well be a function of the monetary support they have garnered to date.

Wagner, meanwhile, has touted his experience as a veteran lawmaker who can fix the state's congested highways.


Turnout is expected to be light today as Virginia voters cast ballots in both Democratic and Republican gubernatorial primary elections. A Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor, former Joe Biden aide Susan Platt, one-upped both by calling for the president's impeachment.

Perriello also bridges the gaps in the party.

He said the bigger problem has been voters not being aware they had to pick a Republican or Democratic ballot. Will her call for a commission to re-think statues and public highways and buildings named after Confederates electrify socially-conscious Democrats?

Democrats have seen a surge in candidates for the House of Delegates this year, where they have a longshot at taking back control of the chamber from Republicans in November. Glenn Davis are seeking their party's nomination.

The frenetic Perriello, 42, held a 24-hour marathon campaign blitz throughout the commonwealth at the end of last week, stopping in diners, gas stations and holding a fun run. Or do they respond to Vogel's more conventional campaign? Frank Wagner, is also running in the GOP primary. Or will it simply return the present incumbents?

In Virginia, yes, but be aware of people around you who may not want to be in the photo. Mark Warner's prospects for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.
