RVAHub Guide: Tuesday’s Primary Elections

The big battle is in November when every seat in the General Assembly is up for election but first, we have the primary.

In November, all 140 seats in Virginia’s General Assembly are up for election. Currently, the Republicans hold a two-seat margin in both chambers. Before we get to the big show in November the parties must choose their candidates, thus a primary on Tuesday, June 11th.

There are 16 State Senate primary elections, 11 Democrat and five Republican. Five of them involve districts in Central Virginia. There are 19 House of Delegates primaries statewide, 12 Democrat and seven Republican. Two of them involve districts near metro-Richmond.

The Virginia Mercury has three articles on the primary.
