RICHMOND, Va. (WDVM)– Virginia’s May and June elections have now been postponed to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
According to Virginia Governor Ralph Northam he is postponing upcoming elections in the commonwealth by two weeks. Northam requested the General Assembly to move the general election and all special elections scheduled for May 5th to the November 3rd general election date. Although the Senate did not pass it, June’s primary elections has been moved from June 9th to June 23rd.
