‘Super Tuesday’: A quick reminder before you head to the polls

Virginia’s Democratic presidential primary is Tuesday – polls are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The Republican Party voted to cancel its Virginia primary, according to ballotpedia.org.

Tuesday marks Super Tuesday, with 14 states — Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Democrats Abroad, Maine, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, and Virginia — and one U.S. territory holding nominating contests and one-third of delegates at stake.
