General Assembly Special Elections

There are two special elections scheduled for January 6th (81st District) and January 13th (46th District) to fill vacancies in the Virginia House of Delegates. The 81st District (portions of the Cities of Chesapeakeand Virginia Beach) is due to the resignation of Republican Terrie Suit when she joined a local lobbying firm. The vacancy in the 46th District (portions of the County of Fairfax andthe City of Alexandria) is due to the resignation of Democrat Brian Moran so he can focus on his run for the Democratic nomination for Governor. Terri Suit was a reliable pro-gun vote with rare exceptions. Moran was reliably anti-gun until he decided to run for Governor and decided he should cast some pro-gun votes.

The candidates running are:
81st Democrat John LaCombe
81st Republican Barry D. Knight
46th Democrat Charniele Herring
46th Republican Joe R. Murray

If you are not sure if you live in either of these districts, click here, complete the form and you will be directed to information for your current representative. If either Terri Suit or Brian Moran are listed as your delegate, you need to vote on the appointed date.

It is important that we elect candidates that share our pro-rights views. VSSA will alert gun owners on which candidates will best protect the 2nd Amendment. Check here and sign up for our legislative email alerts to stay current on all of the important news related to your gun rights.
