2 Virginia Delegates Running for Open Virginia Senate Seats This November Vacated Their House Seats on August 2nd to Allow for Special Elections in November 2016 for Their Old House Seats Instead of in January 2017




Back on July 13th I posted about 2 Virginia Senate seats “Special Elections” this November for two current members of the Virginia House that if they win will mean a Special Election in January 2017 to fill the two vacant Virginia House seats. Also on July 13th  I posted about all the Virginia candidates running for US Congress which includes 3 current State Legislators who if they are elected to Congress in November we’d have 3 other vacancies  for a Special Election in January 2017. 

Yesterday on August 2 two Virginia Delegates (both running for Virginia Senate) decided to step-down from the Virginia House positions immediately to allow for replacements to run for election in November instead of delaying it until January 2017. If I wasn’t following the Governor on Twitter https://twitter.com/GovernorVA/status/760569393491435525/photo/1 , I would never have heard about it as this news did not go out in a Governors email announcement. 

So………… two more State Special Elections will be held on November 8, 2016, for a total of 4. 

Virginia Delegate Monty Mason’s 93rd District VA House seat includes:
Ø       James City County (part)
Ø       York County (part)
Ø       City of Newport News (part)
Ø       City of Williamsburg 

Virginia Delegate Lionel Spruill Sr ‘s 77th District VA House seat includes:
Ø       City of Chesapeake (part)
Ø       City of Suffolk (part) 

The candidates for these 2 District’s are yet to be determined but when they are known I will post about them so those of you who live in these Districts can learn about the candidates and go vote on November 8th!
