Those who vote in the Democratic primary will be asked to choose between two candidates running for governor, three running for lieutenant governor, two running for the 33rd House District, and three running for the 67th House District. Those voting in the GOP primary will be tasked with choosing from three gubernatorial candidates vying for the party’s nomination, and three running for lieutenant governor.

Three poll locations have been temporarily moved for primary day, to accommodate graduation ceremonies and a renovation project at a church. Voting that typically happens at the Aldie United Methodist Church for the 309 Aldie Precinct will take place at Church of our Redeemer, 39518 John Mosby Highway near Aldie. Voters from the 413 Tuscarora Precinct who typically vote at Tuscarora High School will instead vote at Frances Hazel Reid Elementary School, 800 N. King St. in Leesburg. And voters in the 209 Potomac Falls Precinct, who typically vote at Potomac Falls High School, will cast their ballots at River Bend Middle School next door, 46240 Algonkian Parkway in Cascades.
