The purpose of this primary election is for both parties to select their candidate for the November 3, 2020 Presidential election. As of mid-December 2019, there are fourteen candidates on the Democratic ballot. There will NOT be a Republican Presidential primary because Virginia Republicans will hold a convention in June to select their Presidential candidate.
Here is the schedule of events leading up to the March 3 Presidential primary.

It is important that all Democrats turn out to vote — because — Virginia has open primaries. That is, anyone can vote in the primary — Democrat, Republican, Independent, no party affiliation. We know Republicans will vote in the Democratic primary hoping to choose a weak candidate to face Donald Trump in the November 3, 2020 Presidential election.
