VA-8th Primary Election

April 9, 2010, 5:00 pm – the filing deadline for the June 8th Democratic primary election.

Two candidates have submitted their petitions, Declaration of Candidacy and a receipt showing that their filing fee has been paid to the State Board of Elections: James P. Moran, Jr. (incumbent) and Ronald Mitchell.

The local registrars will review the petitions ensuring that there are 1,000 signatures of qualified voters in the Eighth Congressional District from each candidate, and once the 1,000 signatures’ number for a candidate is met, then their work will stop on that candidate.

Margo Horner, Chair of the 8th Congressional District Democratic Committee, must then submit the Certification of Candidates Form to the State Board of Elections by Wednesday, April 14, 2010, at 5 pm.
