Elections 2020 | Ashburn Precinct

A view from inside of the Loudoun County voting precincts on Election Day.

The Loudoun County Office of Elections will welcome Democrat voters on Tuesday for the June 8 Gubernatorial Primary with polls open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The primary elections will be held for the purpose of nominating a candidate for the offices of governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, and house of delegates.

Glenn Youngkin, former co-chief executive of Carlyle Group, was selected as the Republican nominee for governor last month.

Additionally, Winsome Sears and Jason Miyares won the party’s nomination for Virginia’s lieutenant governor and attorney general, respectively.

Rather than a traditional primary, Republicans selected their nominees last month during a nominating convention in which delegates were elected to vote by their local Republican committees.

Six candidates are seeking the Democratic nomination for governor, including former governor Terry McAuliffe, state senator Jennifer McClellan, former delegate Jennifer Carroll Foy, state delegate Lee Carter and lieutenant governor Justin Fairfax.

In the lieutenant governor race, seven candidates are seeking the party’s nomination for lieutenant governor, including state Del. Hala Ayala, Del. Sam Rasoul, Norfolk City councilmember Andria McClellan, Del. Elizabeth Guzman, Fairfax County NAACP President Sean Perryman, Del. Mark Levine and business executive Xavier JaMar Warren.

Mark Herring, a Loudoun County native, is seeking re-election in the attorney general’s race against state Del. Jerrauld “Jay” Jones.

Locally, some voters will also see contested races for the House of Delegates.

Incumbent Kathleen Murphy, a democrat representing the 34th District, is being challenged by small business owner Jennifer Adeli. The district includes parts of Loudoun and Fairfax counties.

Incumbent Ibraheem Samirah, a democrat representing the 86th District, faces nonprofit organizer Irene Shin. The district includes parts of Loudoun and Fairfax counties.

The deadline to register or update voter information ended May 17.

Judy Brown, general registrar for the Loudoun County Office of Elections, told the Times-Mirror that the office has mailed out 2,972 ballots and received 1,041 as of May 26.
