Offices Up for Election in 2023
In Virginia, we have elections every year. This year the entire Virginia State House is up for election, in addition to some school board elections. These are important elections because they will determine the last two years of Governor Youngkin’s term as he pursues national recognition. It’s our chance to undo his damage to the Democratic agenda. If you have any inclination to run, or if you know of anyone that you can encourage to run, please let us know. We should be encouraging people to run for these positions!
The offices you’ll vote for depend on where you live. Each county Registrar’s Office can help you with details (links available below under Polling Locations). Or visit the Virginia Department of Elections and use your zip code or the interactive maps to find out who you’ll be voting for in November 2023.
This section will be updated as information is available for the 2023 election.

The 2020 Census required voting district maps to be redrawn nationwide, and our lake area districts changed as of 2022. We voted in new Congressional Districts (listed below) in 2022; new state representation districts (House of Delegates and Senate) will change to the following in the 2023 election.
- Bedford County lake representation is now in Congressional District 9, House of Delegates District 51 and Senate District 8.
- Franklin County is now in Congressional District 9, House of Delegates District 39 and Senate District 7.
- Pittsylvania County is now in Congressional District 5, House of Delegates District 48 and Senate District 9.
