Hundreds of people lined up outside the Fairfax County Government Center Friday to vote in the 2020 general election, giving Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), who is seeking a third term in office, a captive audience to introduce himself to voters and discuss issues.

Unlike his previous successful campaigns for U.S. Senate and Virginia governor, Warner was not able to shake voters’ hands due to the coronavirus crisis. But he did agree to have his photo taken with many of the voters waiting — six feet apart from each other — in the large area in front of the government center, many for as long as two hours before entering the building.
