DPVA District Conventions -- nominees and resolutions

The convention delegate selection process for localities under the Democratic Party of Virginia (DPVA) wrapped up this past Saturday and Monday, and it's time for us to start focusing on the Congressional District (CD) conventions coming up next month. The CD conventions, which will be held on May 7th, 14th, or 21st, will select the district representatives to the Democratic National Committee convention this July in Philadelphia, where the actual Democratic Presidential nominee will be selected.

DPVA Convention update: locality caucuses and beyond

We've seen a lot of Bernie supporters brought to the Democratic Party of Virginia (DPVA) delegate process for the first time this cycle, and there's a lot of confusion as to what is going on and what people need to do. We've been seeing a lot of questions on Facebook about locality caucuses and  how they work, so we've put together this post to try and answer all of those questions in one place.

Upcoming Elections

Many Virginia cites and towns will be holding elections for Mayor and Council Offices on Tuesday, May 3, 2016. The filing deadline for candidates has passed and the candidate lists are available up on the Virginia Department of Elections website. Most localities do not require party affiliation, so most all of these candidates are running as independents, with the exceptions being Democrats in Roanoke, and a few Republicans in Lynchburg and Crewe.


Mission update: general plans and solicitations

I just wanted to thank everyone who has already expressed interest here at ForVirginia.org. I was a bit surprised to see so many people already created user accounts, and I just wanted to take a few minutes to let people know what our plans are and solicit your feedback.

About ForVirginia.org

We originally started ForVirginia.org in early 2016 as a way to provide information to Bernie Sanders supporters during the primary process. We recognized the need for a centralized location to disperse information and explain the political process for all of the various grassroots organizations operating throughout the state and on social media. We later decided to start our own Political Action Committee, or PAC, in order to raise money in order to fund our operations as well as contribute to candidates seeking office in local and statewide elections.
