ROANOKE, Va. – Virginians will be heading to the polls on November 2, although more than 1 million people across the Commonwealth have already voted, either by mail or in person.
It’d be hard to not realize that we Virginians are electing a governor this November, but that’s not all that’s on the ballot.
All three statewide offices - governor, attorney general and lieutenant governor - are on this year’s ballot, along with all 100 seats in the Virginia House of Delegates.
While all 100 seats are up for grabs, not every seat is contested, meaning that some voters may only see one candidate running for a particular seat.
Depending on where you live, you may see other local offices or referendums on your ballot.
