Decision Desk HQ will have the fastest, most detailed, and accurate election results for today’s primaries in Virginia at results.decisiondeskhq.com, including mapped precinct-level results for the Virginia Governor Democratic primary.
Today Virginia Democrats headed to the polls to decide who their party’s nominees will be for Governor, Lt. Governor, Attorney General, as well as each House of Delegates district. Virginia Republicans opted to choose their statewide nominees via a party convention, but are still choosing their House of Delegates nominees in today’s primary. The Democratic primary for governor is open, as it always is since governors in Virginia are barred from serving consecutive terms. It does, however, feature former Governor Terry McAuliffe who is considered the heavy favorite. The race also includes former House of Delegates member Jennifer Carroll Foy, who resigned her seat in the 2nd district to run for governor; State Senator Jennifer McClellan; Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax; and Delegate Lee Carter, who is also running for re-election to his House of Delegates seat in the 50th district. You can find the election results to all of the races in Virginia on our results site when polls close at 7 p.m. (EDT)
