Virginia Republicans elect their nominee to fight President Obama in the November elections Super Tuesday, March 6, along with nine other states.

Forty-nine delegates are up for grabs in the state, where the contest is a duel between Romney and Paul. The remaining two candidates won't be able to contest here as they failed to get the number of signatures required by the state GOP rules.

The NBC News/Marist poll has said that Romney is supported by 69 percent of voters in the state, while 26 percent voters support Paul.

In the state of Virginia, any registered voter can vote in the primaries, irrespective of their party affiliation.

According to the Virginia Secretary of State Web site there are 4,655,324 active voters in 2,584 precincts in the state.
