Virginia will be electing a new governor this fall (our governors aren’t allowed to run for re-election right after their term) and here’s what’s happening so far:
Democrats will have a primary (check out more on Virginia Public Access Project or Ballotpedia) to choose between their candidates for governor, lieutenant governor, and attorney general. Voting in the primary begins Friday, April 24th, and runs Monday – Friday, plus the last two Saturdays (May 29th and June 5th) before Primary Election Day on June 8, 2021. (There is only a primary for Democratic candidates this year; there is no Republic primary for governor in Virginia in 2021.) Check out the SAMPLE BALLOT for the Democratic primary.
