A drawing by the state Board of Elections puts Republican presidential hopeful Ron Paul first on the ballot for Virginia's March 6 primary.
Mitt Romney will appear second on the ballot. Paul and Romney are the only GOP presidential candidates who have qualified for Virginia's ballot.
The Richmond Times-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/ujP92T ) reports that the board held the drawing Wednesday.
At the request of the state GOP, the board voted to close the primary. A voter who wants to cast a primary ballot must first sign a pledge of intent to support the Republican nominee in November.
Republican Rick Perry filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday in an attempt to get his name on Virginia's ballot. Perry failed to collect the required 10,000 signatures.
Newt Gingrich also failed to gather enough signatures.
