In-Person Absentee Voting Has Ended
If you have not already cast a ballot, you must do so at your local polling place on Tuesday, June 13, between the hours of 6:00 am - 7:00 pm.
If you requested an absentee ballot by mail, it must be returned to your local Registrar's office no later than 7:00 pm on Tuesday, June 13. If it does not arrive at the office by the deadline, it will not be counted.
If you requested an absentee ballot, but plan to vote in person on Tuesday, bring your absentee ballot with you to the polls. They will take the absentee ballot and give you an actual ballot to cast that day. If you no longer have your absentee ballot you may still cast a provisional ballot. The Electoral Board will check to see who returned absentee ballots If your absentee ballot was never returned, your provisional ballot will be counted.
All candidates are listed in the order in which they will appear on the ballot.

House of Delegates 42nd District (#HD42)
The 42nd district is the only General Assembly seat in Braddock currently held by a Republican. The incumbent has decided not to seek re-election, so this is also an open seat. This means we have our best opportunity in years to flip this seat so Braddock can send an all Democratic delegation to the General Assembly.
In Braddock, only Cardinal & Keene Mill precincts are in this district.
There are two Democrats seeking the nomination in the 42nd:
Frequently Asked Questions
I am not a registered Democrat. Can I vote in the Primary?
Yes. Virginia does not register voters by Party, so anyone can vote in any party's primary.
Are the Republicans holding a primary?
Yes. The Republican primary is also on June 13.
Can I vote in both the Democratic & Republican primaries?
No. When you arrive at the polls you must choose either a Democratic or Republican ballot.
I want to vote in the Republican primary to help nominate the weakest candidate so the Democrats can win in November!
Please don't do that. We want to nominate the best person to be our next Governor, confident that he will win in November. Let your voice be heard in selecting that best candidate. Also, on the off chance that we lose in November, you don't want to have helped select the worst possible person to be our Governor for the next four years!
