Higher Voter Turnout in Northern Virginia

June 9, 2009

(AP) - State officials say they are seeing heavier
voter turnout in northern Virginia for Tuesday's primaries.

Election and party officials believe less than 5 percent of the
state's 5 million registered voters will take part.

Voters are choosing Democratic nominees for governor and
lieutenant governor as well as nominees in a dozen House of
Delegates races.

State Board of Elections Secretary Nancy Rodrigues says as of 11
a.m. turnout ranges from more than 6 percent in Alexandria to about
4 percent in the Richmond area.

The highest numbers were about 10 percent in Arlington precincts
where they have a House of Delegates race. The lowest were in
Southwest Virginia with about 2 percent.

The polls are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
