Over 8,000 Fairfax County voters have already requested mail-in ballots and over 300 have already voted in the June 6 Democratic primary election.

Those races include in the neighboring 38th District covering Sleepy Hollow where 11-year incumbent Kaye Kory is facing a challenge from Holly Hazard, the co-founder of an animal protection firm.
In the 34th District of McLean, incumbent Kathleen Murphy is facing a challenge from Jennifer Adeli. In the 36th District, incumbent Ken Plum is facing a challenge from Mary Barthelson, and in the 49th District that includes the Culmore District adjacent Falls Church, incumbent Alfonso Lopez is facing a challenge from Karishma Mehta.
The races for governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general are also on the ballot.
