MCLEAN, Va. (AP) - Officials are urging voters in northern Virginia to head to polls early as a winter storm moves into the region.

The three-way special election is scheduled Tuesday in a swing district that will determine control of the state Senate.

Polls have opened in the 33rd District, which includes parts of Loudoun and Fairfax counties. Public schools in both counties are closed, but polling places located at schools are still open.

Polls are scheduled to close at 7 p.m., but officials recommend that people cast their ballots early before weather conditions get too messy.

Democrat Jennifer Wexton, Republican John Whitbeck and independent Joe May are vying for the seat held by Democrat Mark Herring, who was elected attorney general. The term will expire in 2016.
