Political power in Va. Senate to be decided Tuesday
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.
