Original Post:

There are 435 members of the U.S. House of Representatives (Congress) and 100 members of the U.S. Senate. 

November 2014 is not an election year for any of the 140 State Representative seats in Virginia, or the Governor or the Attorney General but it is a year for almost all of our Federal Representatives in Washington D.C. 

Virginia has a total of 11 Congressional Districts/Seats and one of them represents you! Virginia also has 2 Senate Districts/Seats in Washington D.C. and they both represent you!
