The House District 35 Democratic Nominating Committee, chaired by Michelle Woody, has officially announced October 8th as the date for the Caucus to determine the Democratic nominee in the January 10th Special Election.
Democratic voters may cast a ballot in the Unassembled Caucus – similar to a regular primary election where participants may check in, vote, and leave – at any one of three voting locations throughout the district on Saturday, October 8th, between 10am and 4pm.
Caucus locations include:
- Kilmer Center Cafeteria, 8102 Wolftrap Road Vienna, VA 22182
- Oakton Elementary School Cafeteria, 3000 Chain Bridge Rd, Oakton, VA 22124
- Patrick Henry Library Meeting Room, 101 Maple Ave E, Vienna, VA 22180
Early voting will be available at the headquarters of the Fairfax County Democratic Committee (8500 Executive Park Ave, Suite 402, Fairfax, VA 22031) on Tuesday, October 4th, from 10am to 2pm and on Thursday, October 6th, from 5pm to 8pm.
Candidates for the nomination have until Friday, September 30th, to submit the appropriate documents to appear on the caucus ballot. Voters may find information about the caucus at FairfaxVotes.org/HD35.
The 35th House District includes Dunn Loring, Oakton, Tysons, and the Town of Vienna. The previous Delegate from the 35th House District, Mark Keam, resigned in early September to serve in the Biden-Harris Administration. The winner of the October 8th Caucus is expected to win the January 10th Special Election, just as Democrats have won the 35th House District in every election since 2003.
