Virginia's June Primary Election is today. Here is the candidate list.

The Commonwealth's primary election was postponed to June 23 by an executive order issued by Gov. Ralph Northam because of the pandemic.

RICHMOND, Va. — Virginia's primary elections will get underway on Tuesday, June 23.

The Commonwealth's primary election was originally scheduled for June 9 but postponed two weeks by an executive order issued by Gov. Ralph Northam because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Tuesday's election results will determine the Democratic and Republican nominees who will be on the general election ballot for the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives. 

That election will be held on November 3, 2020.

The Senate seat is currently held by Democratic Sen. Mark Warner. He could face off in November against Daniel M. Gade, Thomas A. Speciale II or Alissa A. Baldwin.

On the ballot are other House of Representative races across Virginia, although some candidates -- including 2nd District Democratic Rep. Elaine Luria and 3rd District Democratic Rep. Bobby Scott -- are running unopposed and are not on the ballot.

Former Congressman Scott Taylor is returning to win back his old seat from Representative Luria. He's running against Ben Loyola, Jr. and Jarome Bell to win the Republican nomination.
