Virginia is one of 14 states holding a Democratic Presidential Primary Tuesday, March 3, on what is known as Super Tuesday, the day when the most states are holding primaries. Registered voters go to the polls to vote for the candidate of their choice to run as the Democratic Party nominee for President. There are 14 candidates on the ballot and you can view a sample ballot on the Newport News Voter Registrar website.
