DETAILS: 35th District Special Election

Republicans to Hold Party Canvass on November 5th

On Tuesday, January 10, 2023, a special election will be held to fill the newly-vacant 35th District seat for Virginia’s House of Delegates. The election was triggered by the resignation of longtime Delegate Mark Keam (D-35).

35th District Republicans will hold a party canvass (also known as a “firehouse primary”) on Saturday, November 5, 2022 to nominate a candidate. Voting location is TBD.

A second voting location might be announced, if deemed necessary, based on projected turnout. According to the official call, “Balloting will begin at 9:00 a.m. and will end at 4:00 p.m., except that anyone in the registration line at 4:00 p.m. may continue the registration process.”

For all the relevant details, CLICK HERE to read the official call; and CLICK HERE for the official party canvass rules. Finally, if you are interested in running for the nomination, CLICK HERE for the official candidate filing form.

If you have any questions or concerns with respect to the nomination process, please contact the Fairfax GOP at 703.766.4467 or

Good luck to all potential nominees — let’s flip this district!
