FAIRFAX COUNTY – At its March 22nd general body meeting, members of the Fairfax County Democratic Committee (FCDC) voted 86% in favor of a resolution calling for special elections for the House of Delegates in 2022.
“It’s the right thing to do,” said FCDC Chair Bryan Graham. “The Constitution of Virginia is clear that we should have voted with new, balanced district boundaries last November. Trump administration delays of Census data forced our elections last year on outdated maps. The courts can and should do the right thing by calling for House of Delegates elections in compliance with the Constitutional right of equal representation.”
FCDC is the largest local Democratic Party organization in the Commonwealth of Virginia, representing the Democrats from strongly Democratic Fairfax County, Virginia’s most populous jurisdiction. FCDC joins organizations such as the Virginia State Conference of the NAACP, Virginia League of Women Voters, and the ACLU of Virginia in calling for these special elections.
