It’s primary day, and there are dozens of races across the state to pick official party candidates for the November elections, when all 140 seats in the General Assembly will be on the ballot, among other local races.

Virginians need not be a member of party to vote in these races.

To find out if there’s one on your ballot, you can go to the Department of Elections website to review your legislative districts.

The Virginia Public Access Project has interactive maps showing which races are contested and see what’s on your ballot. Ballotpedia also allows you to search by address to find out what you can vote on today.

Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
