Election day in Virginia will be held on November 7, 2023.
Every seat (100 delegates and 40 senators) in the General Assembly is up for election AND the newly drawn district lines will take effect. This means that many are voting in new districts. These changes can present challenges, but they also present important opportunities to promote faithful citizenship in our parishes by encouraging the faithful to exercise their right to vote.
The Catholic faithful are best prepared to take on this civic right and responsibility through prayer, proper catechetical formation, and voter education. In order to help inform parishioners about what they can expect in this critical off-year election, the Office for Marriage, Family and Respect Life has partnered with The National Committee for A Human Life Amendment (HLA) to create info sessions on August 23, 24, and 25. These sessions will highlight how the legislative process in Virginia works, how to find new districts and representatives, and how to maximize voter turnout in the Commonwealth.
