Wednesday, October 7, 2021, ARLINGTON, VA.—Early voting in Virginia’s Nov. 2 election—which features 6 contested candidate races and four Arlington bond measures, ranging from governor to capital projects for Arlington Public Schools—is underway and continues through Saturday, Oct. 30. It will include the first-time ever Sunday voting opportunity in Arlington, on Oct. 24.  

“Democrats regained full control of the commonwealth’s government in 2019 for the first time in decades,” said Arlington County Democratic Committee Chair Jill Caiazzo, “and since then, we’ve passed commonsense gun reforms, abolished the death penalty in Virginia, expanded access to healthcare, implemented criminal justice reform, effectively battled the coronavirus pandemic, and begun rebuilding an economy that works for everyone. Every single race on the ballot is contested on Nov. 2. Please help us show that Arlington Democrats take nothing for granted by getting to the polls and ensuring we continue this progress with a Democratic state government that has the resources to continue this progress.”

Voters may confirm that they’re registered to vote at Virginia Voter Information – Citizen Portal. Those not registered to vote may register until Oct. 12, either online or in-person:
