In a meeting Friday night, the Republican State Central Committee approved a Convention Call that will allow Republicans to vote at remote locations spread across the Commonwealth in order to choose their nominee for governor, lieutenant governor, and attorney general. 

The party’s governing committee agreed to allow convention delegates to participate in ranked-choice voting at close to 40 locations across Virginia on May 8. The voting will take place from 9 am to 4 pm.
