On November 5, 2019, all 140 seats in Virginia’s General Assembly are up for election. Control of both the House and Senate is up in the air, and Democrats have a shot of flipping both chambers from red to blue.

At the Dogwood we know it can be tough to stay on top of what’s happening in local politics. As election day closes in, candidates need as much help as possible. So we put together guides for districts in Virginia with competitive races to help you figure out when and where you can help out.
