In Virginia, Democrats in the 8th Congressional District are voting today to select their choice to replace longtime Congressman Jim Moran, who is retiring this year.
At the Alexandria City Hall precinct today, voters are few and far between.
I ask one voter, "How would you describe the mood here at the polls?"
"Quiet. It's been very slow today so get our here and exercise your vote," says David Cordell. He's here to support Arlington Delegate Patrick Hope, one of the seven candidates running in the election today.
Hazel Rigby is here to support Alexandria Mayor Bill Euille. She says the low turnout is unsettling. "It's sort of discouraging because I think they've worked hard. They've worked very hard on this."
Turnout in this election is projected to be about 15 percent. That's even lower than the original projection of 20 percent, partly because the midday storm kept some people from voting at lunchtime.
