The November election is six months away, but Republicans in one area are voting tomorrow.
Residents of Bedford, Botetourt and Alleghany Counties will be choosing the GOP nominee in the 19th House District, the area that Lacey Putney has represented for more than 50 years.
The 19th district stretches from Bedford to Covington, and voting will take place in three locations.
The Thaxton Community Center is five miles west of Bedford on Route 460, directly opposite Thaxton Elementary School.
Lord Botetourt High School is located on Roanoke Road in Daleville.
The Old Alleghany County Board of Supervisors meeting room is on Rosedale Avenue in Covington.
Four candidates are vying for the GOP nomination. They are Terry Austin, Zachary Hatcher, Zach Martin and Jim McKelvey. The primary will likely decide who replaces Putney in Richmond. Voting takes place from 6 to 9 Tuesday night.
