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 it’s presently uncertain if the redistricting plan for the Virginia House of Delegates will 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 two years 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.
