Luckily, there's a tool that can help you know for sure if you reside within the district.

The Virginia General Assembly's "Who's My Legislator?" tool allows people to search for their representatives by address. Just type the address in and the tool will show the state delegate, state senator, the U.S. House representative and the U.S. senators for that location.

On the ballot, Republican Kevin Adams is facing off against Democrat Aaron Rouse. Whoever wins will succeed Jen Kiggans, who resigned to take her seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Polls will be open until 7 p.m. Tuesday. Anyone who is in line by 7 p.m. will be able to cast a ballot.
