Virginia Governor Requesting Delay of May Municipal Elections
Gov. Ralph Northam has announced the June 9 primary election will be postponed until June 23 due to concerns about COVID-19.
Northam has also requested the General Assembly postpone the May 5 municipal elections to coincide with the November 3 general election.
The General Assembly would need to reconvene to approve such a postponement.
The postponement may also extend current local official terms of office to facilitate the election of their successors.
