Elections have consequences. The decision makers we elect to office will have an impact—positive or negative—on your business and your clients. Your vote is your chance to help get pro-REALTOR® candidates a seat at that table.
Election Day is Tuesday, November 6, 2018. This year, the National Association of REALTORS®, in conjunction with the Virginia REALTORS®, are recommending the following panel of candidates based on their record of support for relevant real estate issues:
US Senate – Senator Tim Kaine
1st District – Congressman Rob Wittman
2nd District – Congressman Scott Taylor
3rd District – Congressman Bobby Scott
4th District – Congressman Donald McEachin
6th District – Ben Cline
7th District – Congressman Dave Brat
8th District – Congressman Don Beyer
9th District – Congressman Morgan Griffith
10th District – Congresswoman Barbara Comstock
11th District – Congressman Gerry Connolly
There are two proposed amendments to the Virginia Constitution on the ballot this year. The Virginia REALTORS® encourage you to vote “YES” on both initiatives. More information about the ballot questions can be found on the Department of Elections website.
