Virginia voters head to the polls for Tuesday's primary elections.

It's primary day in Virginia, and the marquee race in today's primary features former Gov. George Allen (R) trying to fend off three challengers: Chesapeake minister E.W. Jackson (R), Tea Party activist Jamie Radtke (R) and Prince William County Del. Bob Marshall (R).

Also, in the 11th Congressional District, retired Army Col. Chris Perkins and traffic engineer Ken Vaughn are vying for the Republican nod to take on Rep. Gerry Connolly (D).

Meanwhile, in the 8th Congressional District, longtime Rep. Jim Moran (D) is being challenged by Navy veteran Bruce Shuttleworth.

In the most competitive race on the ballot, 14 candidates are seeking six slots on the Democratic ticket for Alexandria City Council. Polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
