Voters planning to partake in Tuesday's special election to fill the Virginia Senate's 33rd District seat, formerly held by new Attorney General Mark Herring (D), are being urged by Loudoun County officials to vote early to avoid the worst of an expected snowstorm.
The election will go on regardless of nasty weather or a closing of Loudoun County Public Schools.
Polls open at 6 a.m., offering registered voters in the district a chance to cast ballots for Republican John Whitbeck, Democrat Jennifer Wexton or Joe May, a former Republican state delegate running as an independent.
Polls close at 7 p.m.
Additional information about the election, including a link to a map of the 33rd Senate District and a list of the precincts involved in the election, is online at http://www.loudoun.gov/vote
The contest to fill the 33rd District seat has monumental implications for the commonwealth and its new slate of Democratic leaders – Herring, Gov. Terry McAuliffe and Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam. If Whitbeck or May – likely to caucus with Republicans – win the seat, the Democrats will be forced to reckon with a Republican-controlled House and Senate.
