Tuesday, candidates for Congress and Senate will face off in Virginia's Republican primary election.
Congressman Bob Goodlatte, who represents Virginia's Sixth District, faces his first Republican competitor since he was elected in 1993. Goodlatte and Karen Kwiatkowski will vie for the nomination.
Even though this is a first in almost 20 years, local registrars are not expecting anything out of the ordinary. They say primaries are generally much slower than November's elections.
Augusta County's General Registrar Brandi Lilly said she has not noticed an increased interest in this particular primary.
"We assume that later on in the summer, getting closer to the November general elections, we'll see a large in increase in people checking their registration applications and making sure that their information is up to date. But, nothing major at this point to insinuate that there's been a huge interest in this election," said Lilly.
