The Fairfax County Office of Elections predicting only about 10 percent voter participation on Tuesday.
The time to cast absentee ballots in the Virginia primaries has ended.
It's summertime and many people are vacationing, which may be the reason why turnout was low.
Saturday was the last day to cast an absentee ballot at the Fairfax Government Center and officials say not many people showed up, which has Edgardo Cortes of the Fairfax County Office of Elections predicting only about 10 percent voter participation on Tuesday.
"The volume of absentee ballot requests has been fairly low for us and so that's usually an indicator of a pretty light turnout for Tuesday," he says.
Tuesday is the primary election in Virginia for some state and local offices.
