Who Will Be First?
Democratic candidates for governor Brian Moran and Terry McAuliffe will stop in Richmond today to turn in the signatures needed to be on the primary ballot June 9.
In Virginia, the candidate who turns in his petitions first gets their name on the ballot first.
McAuliffe and Moran both plan to be at the state Board Board of Elections office just before noon -- the first time the signatures will be accepted.
The three Democratic candidates have until April 10 to submit 10,000 signatures (including 400 from each congressional district) to the state.
State sen. R. Creigh Deeds of Bath will not turn in petitions today. He is expected to do so later in the month, ensuring that he will be last on the ballot.
