If you wish to run for election as pledged delegate to the 1st or 5th Congressional District Convention and the Virginia State Convention, you should file online. All individuals interested in running to be a State Delegate or Alternate, must pre-file with the Democratic Party of Virginia by
5:00PM on Thursday, April 9th, 2020.
Note: if you file to be a State Delegate or Alternate, you will be allowed to participate in our local caucus.
You do not need to file the Caucus Participation Form as well.
The number of delegates to be elected in the caucus is based on the number of delegates won by each candidate in the March primary election.
In Fauquier’s small portion of the 1st congressional district we will elect 2 delegates and 1 alternate for Biden, and 1 delegate for Sanders.
In Fauquier's portion of the 5th congressional district we will elect 9 delegates and 2 alternates for Biden and 3 delegates for Sanders.
If you wish to run for election as a National Convention Delegate
The Town Elections are scheduled for Tuesday, May 5, 2020, to be held in four facilities in Warrenton, one in The Plains and one in Remington. The locations of the elections have been set by Ordinance passed by the respective Town Councils.
The safety and health situation of the voters and general populace endangered by COVID-19 has brought many questions to the forefront concerning these elections.
Currently, the Commissioner of Elections has offered to all voters the right to vote by absentee ballot instead of going to the polls on Election Day. If all vote by this method, there would be no grouping of voters on Election Day at the polls and local COVID-19 safety would be greatly enhanced.
We urge everyone to vote by absentee ballot. You may legally do so by requesting an absentee ballot and marking reason Code 2A, even though you may not be disabled or sick.
You may apply online (click below). To successfully complete the form online, you will need your Virginia Driver’s License Number and Social Security Number, in addition to answering all the questions correctly. If you cannot complete the application online, you may print an application and complete it at home and mail, fax or deliver the completed application to the office of the General Registrar
(528 Waterloo Rd, Suite 200,Warrenton, VA 20186-3011).
Whichever way you are able to complete the application, once the registrar receives it, they will then mail the ballot to you.
