Virginians will be electing representatives for the US Senate and the US House of Representatives. They will also be choosing among candidates in several state-level special elections–elections to fill vacancies when people have left office early. Finally, voters will have the chance to weigh in on referendums (these are questions put directly to voters). You’ll find more information about candidates and referendums and registration deadlines at the Virginia Department of Elections website, click here.
