Primary Election Tuesday

Primary Election Tuesday

Loudoun's registered voters go to the polls Tuesday, June 14, to make selections in either the Democratic or Republican primary elections. All polling places will be open from 6 a.m.-7 p.m.

Even though voters do not register by party in Virginia, because it is a dual primary, voters will be asked to select either the Republican or Democratic ballot. In previous years, the primaries were held separately allowing voters to vote in one or both party's primary.

Appearing on the Democratic ballot is the lieutenant governor race: Leslie L. Byrne, J. C. "Chap" Petersen, Phillip P. Puckett and Viola Osborne Baskerville.

On the Republican ballot are the races for governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general and two House of Delegate seats for voters who live in those districts, the 33rd District and 67th District.

For governor: George B. Fitch and Jerry W. Kilgore.

For lieutenant governor: Sean T. Connaughton and William T. "Bill" Bolling.

For attorney general: Robert F. "Bob" McDonnell and Stephen E. Baril.

For 33rd House District: Joe T. May and Chris G. Oprison.

For 67th House District: Chris S. Craddock and Gary A. Reese.
