The General Election on Nov. 3., 2015 will include the offices of Senate of Virginia (30th, 31st, and 32nd Districts), Virginia House of Delegates (45th, 47th, 48th, and 49th Districts), County Constitutional Offices (Clerk of Court, Commonwealth’s Attorney, Sheriff, Commissioner of Revenue, and Treasurer), County Board (two seats), and School Board.

Primaries: The Democratic party will select their nominees for all of the above offices except School Board on Tuesday, June 9. Primaries will only be held if more candidates than the number of seats for an office file to run. The primary filing deadline is March 26. At this time we are anticipating a primary for the two County Board seats and for the 45th District of the House of Delegates. See Official Notice of Primary Election.

Republicans will select their nominees for all offices at party meetings or caucuses, to be held at dates to be announced. The Republican party has until June 9 to select nominees. For more information, contact the Arlington County Republican Committee.

Independent candidates may run for any office, and must file to run by June 9.

School Board: Under Virginia law, all School Board candidates run as independents, but they may be endorsed by a political party. The Arlington County Democratic Committee will hold an endorsement caucus May 14 and 16 for candidates who wish to seek the party’s endorsement. Two candidates have filed to run in the endorsement caucus; the winner will continue to the ballot in Nov. and the other candidate will withdraw from the race, according to party rules. For more information, contact the Arlington County Democratic Committee.
