Virginians will elect the entire Virginia General Assembly this year and local officials in some jurisdictions. It’s important to elect candidates who support conservation and the environment. Primary elections to elect the candidates for the Democratic Party in all jurisdictions and for the Republican Party in some jurisdictions will be held on June 11. Information on the election and candidates can be found on the website for each county and city.
Posing questions and expressing your views to candidates is critical to encourage them to support strong conservation policies. Check your candidates’ websites or call them for information on town meetings and other appearances.
