Our 2021 Elections
On November 2 2021, Virginia will hold statewide elections for governor, lieutenant governor, and attorney general. In Virginia, a sitting governor may not serve a second consecutive term, but a former governor (e.g., Terry McAuliffe) may run again for a non-consecutive term.
In addition, all 100 seats in the Virginia House of Delegates will be up for election on November 2, 2021, including those for House District 50 (which includes the City of Manassas) and House District 13 (which includes the City of Manassas Park). The decennial redistricting of all state and federal legislative districts in Virginia is supposed to be completed in 2021, but the redistricting plan for the Virginia House of Delegates will not be approved in time for the House of Delegate primary and general elections.
The Cities of Manassas and Manassas Park will each hold elections for two “constitutional officers”, namely Treasurer and Commissioner of the Revenue, on November 2, 2021.
Finally, the City of Manassas will hold a special election on November 2, 2021 to fill the final 14 months of the City Council seat that was vacated following Michelle Davis-Younger’s election as Mayor on November 3, 2020. Effective January 1, 2021, the Manassas City Council appointed MMPCDC member David Farajollahi to fill this vacated seat until after the 2021 special election.

2021 Election Dates
Tuesday, June 8, 2021: Statewide Democratic Primaries for Virginia Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and Attorney General. A primary to nominate a Democratic candidate for House of Delegates District 50, which includes all of the City of Manassas and some portions of Prince William County to its west, including Bristow, will be held simultaneously.
Delegate Danica Roem is already our nominee for House of Delegates District 13, which includes all of Manassas Park and parts of western Prince William County, because no other candidate filed for the Democratic nomination by the March 25 deadline.
If contested, the Democratic nominations for Commissioner of the Revenue and Treasurer in the City of Manassas Park will be decided via an unassembled caucus (aka firehouse primary). The dates, hours, and locations of any such nominating caucus will be announced on this website at least two weeks in advance.
At its March 2021 meeting, MMPCDC voted not to nominate any candidate for the 2021 special election for the open seat on the Manassas City Council. Instead, MMPCDC expects to endorse an independently filed candidate sometime after the June 8 candidate filing deadline. This page will be updated as new information becomes available.
Tuesday, November, 2, 2021: General Election
