Learn about Democratic Candidates in the Fall Election
The November Election will be Tuesday November 2 (6am-7pm)
In November, our delegate in the General Assembly, Sally Hudson, is running for reelection. We look forward to reelecting this strong advocate for all of Virginia’s citizens. Her legislation has made a real difference in addressing unemployment, evictions and health care coverage.
On the November ballot, city voters will vote for several officers: James Bryant for Sheriff, Jason Vandever for City Treasurer, Joe Platania for Commonwealth’s Attorney and Todd Divers for Commissioner of the Revenue. These Democrats are all running unopposed.
For City Council, there are two Democrats running for two seats. (Each voter can vote for two candidates). We have two great Democratic candidates running for council. Brian Pinkston and Juandiego Wade are friends and neighbors who walk together and are ready to serve Charlottesville together on city council. They are committed to fully funding our schools, advocating for local, small businesses and demanding equity and justice for all.
There are also three school board seats on the ballot. Five candidates are running: Current school board members Leah Puryear and Lisa Larson Torres are running for reelection. Christa Bennet, Emily Dooley and Dominic Morse are also running. School board candidates do not run with a party affiliation.
