Democrats in Virginia's 8th District have a primary to get to on Tuesday.
Democrats in Virginia's 8th Congressional District are heading to the polls today to select their party's nominee to replace longtime Congressman Jim Moran.
Voters in Arlington, Alexandria, Falls Church and parts of Fairfax County can cast a ballot in today's Democratic primary. Back 2012, President Barack Obama won 68 percent of the district in the general election. That means the winner in today's primary will likely be elected to Congress.
Although 10 names are on the ballot, three candidates have dropped out, leaving seven candidates vying for attention. There's former Lieutenant Governor Don Beyer, former Urban League of Northern Virginia president Lavern Chatman, state Senator Adam Ebbin, Alexandria Mayor Bill Euille, Arlington Delegate Patrick Hope, Alexandria Planning Commissioner Derek Hyra and radio personality Mark Levine.
Polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
