Chesterfield Democrats have selected Ettrick Elementary School and Elizabeth Davis Middle School as the two Chesterfield County sites for an August 9 unassembled caucus to select a Democratic nominee for Virginia’s 16th Senate District, according to Elizabeth Hardin, Chair of the Chesterfield County Democratic Committee. This seat was formerly held by Henry Marsh.
In accordance with the Rules adopted by the 16th Senate District Democratic Nominating Committee, every person who participates in the caucus must complete a participation form and sign a statement pledging that he or she is a Democrat and not a member of any other political party, does not intend to support any candidate who is opposed to the Democratic nominee in the upcoming Senate 16th District Special election, has not participated and will not participate in the nominating process of any other party for the Senate 16th District Special Election and is registered to vote in Chesterfield County.
Ettrick Elementary School is located at 20910 Chesterfield Ave. in Ettrick and Elizabeth Davis Middle School is located at 601 Corvus Ct. in Chester. Voting will take place at these two locations between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday, August 9. Hardin noted that curbside voting will be available at both sites for anyone needing accommodations due to disability.
