November 2019 Election Results
Democrats took back the General Assembly on November 5 by flipping the House of Delegates and State Senate. While Indivisible Arlington’s adopted candidate Sheila Bynum-Coleman was not able to unseat Kirk Cox in a hard-fought race in the 66th district, Democrats did take several key state legislative races, including Dan Helmer ousting Tim Hugo in the 40th House District, John Bell winning the 13th Senate District, and Hala Ayala and Elizabeth Guzman retaining their House seats. See official results from the Virginia Department of Elections and a summary of key races in the Arlington Patch.
What’s Next in 2020?
- The Virginia General Assembly 2020 Session begins on Wednesday, January 8 in Richmond. With a Democratic House of Delegates and Senate, look for issues such as the ERA, common sense gun legislation, re-districting, LGBTQIA rights, health care, criminal justice reform, and more to finally be addressed. Indivisible Arlington needs people to help track legislation during the state session and to travel to Richmond to work with our Delegates and Senators.
- On November 3, we will vote for a new President, all members of the House of Representatives, and a third of the Senate, including Senator Mark Warner. Indivisible Arlington hopes to organize a variety of election activities including adopting candidates, writing post cards, canvassing, and phone banking.
