VIRGINIA General Election Returns from an official source



VIRGINIA PRIMARY

Tuesday 13 June 2006

VIRGINIA PRIMARY Returns from an official source

Virginia law gives political parties the authority to determine how it will nominate its candidates. On Tuesday 13 June 2006, primaries may be held by a Party re: offices with multiple candidates for that party's nomination. Nominations made by a method other than this Primary must take place no earlier than 12 May 2006 and must be completed by 7:00 p.m. on 13 June 2006 (which is poll closing time on Primary day itself).

The contested races listed below are those in which the given Party has called for a Primary-- in addition to these:

    • The Democratic Party convened a 20 May Convention to nominate candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives in Congressional Districts 5 and 6.
    • The Democratic Party planned to nominate a candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives in Congressional District 7 by the deadline of 13 June. (James Nachman was nominated by the local Party committee on 31 May.)
    • The Republican Party convened a 20 May Convention to nominate a candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives in Congressional District 3.

    In contests where only one candidate filed for a Party's nomination, there will be no primary election: that candidate will appear as the party's nominee on the General Election ballot.

    Contested STATEWIDE race:

    • United States Senate (Class 1 seat):
      • Democrats have nominated Jim Webb

    Contested U.S. HOUSE races:
