Virginia Primary Day: Open Thread


Today is primary election day in Virginia (polls are open from 6 am to 7 pm; vote at your regular polling location), including a Democratic primary in the 8th CD (the candidates are Don Beyer, Patrick Hope, Adam Ebbin, Mark Levine, Bill Euille, Lavern Chatman, Derek Hyra), plus Republican primaries in the 1st (Rep. Rob Wittman vs. Anthony Reidel) and 7th (Rep. Eric Cantor vs. David Brat) CDs.

So…what are you seeing and hearing out there? What’s turnout like in your neck of the woods? Who did you vote for and why? Feel free to add your observations in the comments section. As for me, as of 6 am on Election Day I’m still not sure who I’m going to vote for when I walk into the booth in a few hours. And yes, this is extremely unusual for me, as I usually know weeks if not months in advance who I’m going to support and why. This time? Not so much…
