Fauquier County voters in the Republican primarily election Tuesday, June 11, will select the party’s nominees for county commissioner of revenue and sheriff.

Voters in the Democratic primary will help select House of Delegates nominees in the 18th and 88th Districts.

Those who cast ballots must choose one of the primaries and may not vote in both.

The polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., with 50,621 registered voters in Fauquier County.

Those voting in the Republican primary have simple choices, with all 20 Fauquier County precincts participating.

In the commissioner of revenue race, Eric Maybach and Carl Wiberg compete for the Republican nomination to succeed Ross D’Urso, retiring in December after six, four-year terms.

The Republican nominee will face Angela Smith, an independent candidate from Warrenton, in the Nov. 5 general election.

In the sheriff’s primary, Chris Cochrane challenges incumbent Robert Mosier for the Republican nomination. Unless an independent files by 7 p.m. Tuesday, the Republican nominee will face no opposition on the Nov. 5 ballot.

The Democratic primary gets more complex in Fauquier.

Democrats will have no primary in the 31st House of Delegates District, where Del. Elizabeth Guzman (D-31st/Woodbridge) faces no challenge for the party’s nomination. The 31st includes five Fauquier precincts: Casanova, Catlett, Kettle Run, New Baltimore and Vint Hill.

Del. Guzman will face Republican challenger Darrell “D.J.” Jordan Jr. in the November election.

In the 18th District, which includes 12 Fauquier precincts, two seek the Democratic nomination, Laura Galante and Tristan Shields. Tuesday’s primary winner will face four-term Del. Michael Webert (R-Marshall) in the November general election.

The district includes these Fauquier precincts: Airlie, Baldwin Ridge, Bealeton, Broad Run, Courthouse, Leeds, Marshall, Opal, Springs Valley, The Plains, Warrenton and Waterloo.

The 88th District has two candidates for the Democratic nomination, Kecia Evans of Stafford and Jessica Foster of Remington. The winner will face veteran Del. Mark Cole (R-Spotsylvania) in November.

The 88th includes the Lois, Morrisville and Remington precincts in Fauquier.
