Virginia voters can cast an in-person absentee ballot up until 5 p.m. on Saturday. Polls will be open on Tuesday from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
In Virginia, voters will be heading to the polls on Tuesday for primary elections, but turnout is expected to be low.
Primaries for General Assembly races usually happen in June, but this year the balloting has been pushed back to late August because of redistricting.
That means that candidates in the Democratic and Republican parties are trying to get out the vote in a very difficult environment. Many voters are unaware of Tuesday's elections, and registrars say they are expecting a turnout of only 5 to 10 percent.
Many of the races are high-stakes contests because the districts have been drawn so that members of one party will prevail, meaning that the winner of many races Tuesday night will be headed to Richmond next year.
