Democrats and Republicans holding primaries June 13

Catlett Precinct voters line up to cast ballots in the presidential election last November. Far fewer probably will participate in Tuesday’s primaries.
Fauquier voters Tuesday will help select the major party nominees for Virginia governor and lieutenant governor.

Democrats and Republicans will conduct simultaneous primary elections June 13 to pick their candidates for the November general election.

Voters in Virginia do not register by party. Thus, a registered voter may select a Democratic or Republican ballot Tuesday.

The polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Fauquier has 49,133 registered voters.

In the 31st Virginia House of Delegates District, two Democrats also will appear on Tuesday’s ballot. The winner will face Republican incumbent Scott Lingamfelter in the Nov. 7 general election.

The 31st District includes five Fauquier precincts: Cedar Run, Catlett, Casanova, New Baltimore and Vint Hill.
