RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Voters in some parts of Virginia are headed to the polls for a handful of special elections.
Two special elections are scheduled for Tuesday. Three candidates are vying for a vacant state House seat in the Richmond area, and three people are running for mayor of Fairfax City.
The House seat is vacant because former Del. Jennifer McClellan recently won a seat in the Senate. Former Mayor R. Scott Silverthorne resigned last year after he was arrested for what police said was an attempt to trade drugs for sex in a sting operation.
