Ralph Northam wins Democratic nomination for governor

Stewart has waged a campaign to protect Confederate monuments around the state and was the only candidate to not outright reject an alt-right rally in Charlottesville organized by white nationalist Richard Spencer.

Elections officials say poll workers are taking provisional ballots in the parking lot.

The Democratic contenders for lieutenant governor are former federal prosecutors Justin Fairfax and Gene Rossi, and political consultant Susan Pratt.

Loudoun residents, as will all Virginians, have the opportunity to vote for candidates for the Commonwealth's three statewide offices in the party of their choosing on June 13.

When you arrive at your polling place an election officer will ask which party ballot you would like. On the ballot are candidates for governor, lt.gov. and attorney general.

Although he received a large amount of attention and praise from prominent national Democrats, Perriello was ultimately unable to expand the universe of Democratic primary voters enough to counter Northam's advantages. Meanwhile, Northam, the current lieutenant governor, is being supported by every elected Democrat in the executive or legislative branches of government in the Old Dominion. Time Kaine and Mark Warner, as well as McAuliffe.

Perriello joined the race as resistance to the Trump agenda began to boom, and promised on the stump to make Virginia a bulwark against it.

Unlike Northam's long history in state politics, Perriello, who served a brief tenure in Congress from 2008 to 2010, has no state politics experience. A recent Washington Post poll showed Perriello just barely leading and many undecided voters still making up their minds.

Pemberton Township native Ed Gillespie has won the Republican nomination in Virginia's race for governor. Gillespie was heavily favored to win the Republican nomination heading into Tuesday evening. He co-chaired Virginia's Trump for President campaign and now chairs the board of supervisors in Prince William County, where he implemented "the nation's toughest crackdown on illegal immigration" and helped remove local fees for getting a concealed weapons permit. Jill Vogel defeated fellow Sen.

Attorney General Mark Herring is unopposed in the Democratic primary, as is Republican John Adams, a Richmond attorney.

Northam remains wary of his opponent's appeal to this fresh, frenetic slice of the electorate already piqued to the Perriello candidacy by endorsements from Bernie Sanders, Clinton's primary opponent in 2016, and Elizabeth Warren, a possible presidential candidate in 2020.

The Virginia race, one of the few elections for governor in 2017, is shaping up to reveal the internal divisions of both parties.

The difficulty in doing accurate polls in an off-year primary (when turnouts are typically low) is magnified by the roiling political moment.

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.

Gillespie was endorsed by a raft of state and national Republican leaders.

"Really important part of our democracy to participate in elections, even primary elections", said voter Mable Kinzie.

That has helped spark a dramatic increase in early and absentee voting compared to the same election four years ago, and politicians are expecting an increased turn out on the day of the election itself.
