In Virginia, election season never ends, and this year has already seen several special elections. On Tuesday, March 28, the commonwealth will host yet another.
On Sunday, Virginia Democrats are holding a “firehouse primary” to select a candidate to run in the March 28 special election in Virginia’s 9th Senate District to replace US Rep.-elect Jennifer McClellan. Republicans will also select their nominee on Feb. 26 via an in-person canvass.
Three Democratic candidates have declared their intent to run for the seat: Del. Dawn Adams, Del. Lamont Bagby, and Alexsis Rodgers. As of Friday, Feb. 24, no Republican candidates have stepped forward to run.
All three Democrats are no strangers to the Richmond political sphere, with Del. Adams having served in the House of Delegates since 2017, Del. Bagby having served in the House since 2015, and Rodgers serving as a civic leader in Richmond over the last few years.
There will be multiple polling locations throughout the 9th Senate District where Democrats can cast their primary ballots from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Feb. 26.
- Ashland Municipal Building (121 Thompson St. Ashland)
- Charles City County Administration Building (10900 Courthouse Rd. Charles City)
- East Henrico Government Center (3820 Nine Mile Rd. Richmond)
- Virginia Union University Living and Learning Center (1500 N. Lombardy St. Richmond)
The Republican Party of Virginia will hold its nominating canvass event from noon to 2 p.m. on Feb. 26 at 3429 W. Cary Street.
