Chesterfield residents won’t have a lot to vote on come June 12. No county elections are on the ballot, but there is competition for some U.S. House and Senate seats.
Providence Forge minister Ryan McAdams and Chesterfield fashion designer Shion Fenty are running for the GOP nomination to challenge U.S. Rep. Douglas McEachin in November. McEachin, a Democrat, won the redrawn House District 4 over Michael Wade in 2016 with 57.7 percent.
Abigail Spanberger, a former CIA officer, and airline pilot Daniel K. Ward are vying for the Democratic nomination against Republican U.S. Rep. Dave Brat in House District 7.
Prince William County supervisor Corey Stewart, state Rep. Nick Freitas of Culpeper and minister E.W. Jackson of Chesapeake are competing for the Republican endorsement against U.S. Sen. Tim Kaine, a Democrat who defeated George Allen with 52.9 percent of the vote in the 2012 election to fill the seat of one-term Sen. Jim Webb.
The deadline for registering to vote is May 21. The deadline to request an absentee ballot is June 5, although one may request an absentee ballot in person at 9848 Lori Road by 5 p.m. June 9.
