Republican Field Set For June 18th Primaries

There has been a flurry of activity in our local Republican Party units over the past two weeks, and with the April 4th candidate filing deadline now closed, the slate for the June primaries is final.  On June 18th, Virginians will be choosing party nominees for US Senate and Congress who will be on the ballot for the General Election on November 5th.

Virginia is an “open primary” state, so Virginians do not register to vote with a specific political party. Voters can cast a ballot in either party’s Primary, and will be asked which party’s ballot they want when they cast their vote in June.

Who are the candidates?

US Senate: Running for the opportunity to challenge Hillary Clinton’s Vice Presidential nominee and current Virginia Senator Tim Kaine (D) are:

  • Hung Cao
  • Jonathan Emord
  • Eddie Garcia
  • Scott Parkinson
  • Chuck Smith

Fairfax County spans 3 Congressional Districts:

In the 8th Congressional District, the only candidate who qualified for the ballot is Jerry Torres.  Jerry will have the honor of challenging long-time incumbent Rep. Don Beyer (D).

In the 11th Congressional District, one of our 2023 State Senate candidates, Mike Van Meter, was the only Republican who qualified. Mike will be our nominee running against Rep. Gerry Connolly (D), who started out with his tax-and-spend policies as a Fairfax County Supervisor.

In the 10th Congressional District, 4 candidates will be on the Republican primary ballot:

  • Manga Anantatmula
  • Aliscia Andrews
  • Mike Clancy
  • Alex Isaac

Now is the time to start making your plan to vote in the June primary!

Start by checking your voter registration HERE.  The deadline to register is 5/28, and after that deadline has passed, you can still register “same day” and cast a provisional ballot.

If you have a child who is 17 and will be 18 by the General Election on 11/5, they can pre-register to vote now and cast a ballot in the primary.

Voting by Absentee Ballot:

Request an absentee ballot HERE, and make sure to indicate that you want to receive a REPUBLICAN ballot.  The deadline to apply for an absentee ballot is 6/7 at 5pm. If you have previously signed up to be on the PERMANENT absentee ballot list, check your registration to make sure that you have selected to receive a REPUBLICAN ballot.

Vote Early, In Person Beginning Friday, May 3rd at:

Fairfax County Government Center, North County Government Center, Mount Vernon Government Center

Additional early voting locations will open up later in May, and Fairfax County voters can vote at ANY of those sites. You can find complete details from the Office of Elections. When you arrive to vote in person, you will be asked which party’s primary ballot you would like to receive and vote.

On Election Day, Tuesday, June 18th all voters must vote at their assigned precinct polling location.  You can get that information on our Voter Info Tool or via the Virginia Department of Elections Citizen Portal. When you arrive to vote on Primary Election Day, you will be asked which party’s primary ballot you would like to receive and vote.

8th Congressional District Convention Results: 

Last Thursday night, the 8th District held its biennial convention.  Luisa Guerra-Young (unopposed) became the new Chair and Delegates elected Nancy Almasi, Diane Cullo and Valerie Wohlleben as their representatives to the Republican Party of Virginia’s State Central Committee.  Michael Maibeck was chosen to be the Presidential Elector.

The 11th Congressional District Convention will be held on Saturday, April 20 and the 10th Congressional District Convention will be on Saturday, April 27.
