Information on the County Board Special Election:

"The special election to fill the seat on the Arlington County Board that is now vacant due to Erik Gutshall’s untimely death has been set by a judge for July 7. Per the Arlington Electoral Board, political parties, including the Arlington Democrats, must nominate their candidates for the special election by May 8.

To meet this aggressive timeline, Arlington Democrats will select the Democratic nominee through a vote by the members of its Steering Committee and County Committee, which consist of elected party officials (including Precinct Captains), appointed party officials (including Precinct Leaders and Arlington Young Democrats officers), and Democratic elected officials who reside in Arlington. The vote will be conducted in accordance with this call to caucus and these caucus rules. The vote will be concluded by May 6, and the results will be publicly announced shortly thereafter. Individuals interested in becoming a candidate in the caucus must file this declaration form by May 2."
