Our hard work has continued to pay off, as we succeeded in electing Jennifer Boysko to the Virginia Senate in January 2019. This means that Senator Boysko’s former seat in the House of Delegates, District 86 (or HD86, for short), must be filled, and the special election to fill that seat will take place on February 19, 2019. The Democratic candidate for this seat is Ibraheem Samirah, a local dentist. More info on his biography is available here: https://samirah4delegate.com/biography/
The election will be open to registered voters who live in the Hunter Mill Precincts of: Floris, Fox Mill, and Stuart
Polls will be open from 6am-7pm on February 19, 2019. If you live in Floris, Fox Mill, or Stuart precincts, you will vote at your usual polling location on that day.
A delay affecting In-Person Absentee (Early) Voting for the HD86 Feb 19th Special Election has been resolved, and voting is now open as of January 30, 2019. Please check the VA Board of Elections website (https://www.elections.virginia.gov) or call 703-222-0776 for further information on in-person absentee (early) voting in this special election.
