Election Day is Just Around the Corner - Prepare Now
The 2023 General Assembly session is over. It’s time to prepare for Election Day. All140 seats of the General Assembly are up for election/reelection. Significant turnover in next year’s state legislature will result from redistricting and retirements. Departing senators include John Bell, John Cosgrove, John Edwards, Janet Howell, Lynwood Lewis, Steve Newman, Tommy Norment, Dick Saslaw and Jill Vogel. Delegates not seeking reelection include Dawn Adams, Tim Anderson, John Avoli, Rob Bell, Jeff Bourne, Kathy Byron, John Edmonds, Eileen Filler-Corn, Wendy Gooditis, Mike Mullin, Kathleen Murphy, Ken Plum, Margaret Ransone and Roxanne Robinson. Delegate Lamont Bagby will be taking McClellan’s state senate seat as she succeeds Donald McEachin in Congress. Since this year’s campaigns will occur in newly drawn legislative districts, there are many significant primary races already underway. Expect new representation and leadership in next year’s legislature.
