Three men emerged out of sparsely attended primaries on Tuesday, to earn their party's nomination to run in the November elections.

In the 16th District, which covers Martinsville, along with parts of Henry County and Pittsylvania County, Les Adams defeated Kenneth Bowman to succeed Don Merricks, winning more than 80% of the vote.  More than 3,000 votes were cast in the primary.

Roanoke City Sheriff

In Roanoke, Democrats chose a candidate for sheriff along with the statewide races for Attorney General and Lieutenant Governor.

Tim Allen defeated Joe Bush with more than 86% of the vote.

Allen moves on to a 3-way race in November, against Incumbent Republican Sheriff Octavia Johnson, and Independent challenger Travis Akins.
