Kaine Sets Special Election
Gov. Timothy M. Kaine (D) has set Jan. 6 as the date for voters to go to the polls to elect a replacement for Del. Dwight Clinton Jones (D-Richmond) who resigned to become the mayor of Richmond.
Jan. 6 is also the date set for a special election to replace Del. Terrie Lynne Suit (R-Virginia Beach) who resigned to become a lobbyist.
"The residents of the 70th District deserve to have their voice heard in the General Assembly when it convenes its session in January," Kaine said. "Holding the special election on January 6th will ensure that the needs and interests of these citizens are represented and considered in the legislative process."
State law prohibits special elections 30 days after a general election. The last date to file to run for the seat is Dec. 8.
The 70th House District includes parts of Henrico and Chesterfield counties and part of the the city of Richmond.
