Professor Bill Shendow, Chair of the Political Science Department at Shenandoah University says interest has been deflated in Virginia's Primary because only Mitt Romney and Ron Paul will be on the ballot.
"Voters who would have voted for Rick Santorum or Newt Gingrich will probably not vote or cast a vote for somebody who's not their first choice, or they can cast a vote that's a negative vote," he said.
Virginia is expected to be a battleground state in November, but so far, no candidates have made a strong appearance in the state.
Candidates are required to collect 10,000 signatures to be on the Virginia ballot.
"If you're going to be a national candidate, you'd think you'd be well organized enough to know what those requirements are and have met those requirements," Shendow said. "Those requirements are kind of stringent, but if you have a well organized campaign, it shouldn't have been difficult. It wasn't that difficult four years ago."
One Winchester voter, Scott Moore, says, "If they don't have enough care for Virginia, I don't think it's going to work in their benefit when the real election comes around."
