As a Virginia REALTOR®, you see the impact that lawmakers have on our communities daily! Whether it’s local sign ordinances, business and income taxes, business model regulation, or more health insurance options, ensuring REALTOR® Champions are elected to office is critical to our business.

On November 7th, Virginians will anxiously await the tallies as the polls close to determine winners of state Senate, House of Delegates, and numerous local government offices. However, you don’t have to wait until November to make your REALTOR® voice heard. In fact, absentee voting begins on Saturday, September 23rd.

To learn more about how to request an absentee ballot, visit the Virginia Department of Elections.

One of the simplest, but most important, actions you can take for your business and your clients is to VOTE. By electing candidates who understand the real estate industry, homeownership, and property rights, you’ll help keep a strong real estate environment in Virginia.

Virginia is one of a few states that holds elections in odd years, so it’s important for Virginia REALTORS® to get out and exercise your right to vote. Thank you for your commitment to your business and for showing the strength of the REALTOR® vote, because when REALTORS® Vote, Act, and Invest, REALTORS® WIN!
