48th House District Special Election: Vote TODAY!


Special Election Day for the 48th District House of Delegates seat is TOMORROW, Tuesday, August 19th! Polls will be open from 6:00 am to 7:00 pm.

Dave Foster is our Republican nominee! He is a longtime Arlington resident who served two terms on the Arlington County School Board, and served two terms on the Virginia Board of Education, including one term as President of the Board. He is highly qualified for the job and will make an excellent delegate – if we get out and vote for him!

(You can read about his opponent’s “war on women” in the posts below.)

Turnout for this election is expected to be very low, so every vote counts, even more so than usual. Earlier this year, a special election for state Senate in the Eastern Shore of Virginia was decided by a margin of nine votes out of 20,000 cast – and the Republican candidate lost. One person really can decide an election. Terry McAuliffe showed in the budget showdown that he is willing to break the law and bully legislators to get what he wants, so we need to send another Republican to the House of Delegates to stand strong against Terry McAuliffe. Please go out and vote for Dave Foster!

All but one of the precincts in the 48th House District are in the 8th District – 13 in Arlington and 7 in Fairfax County.

If you vote in one of the precincts listed below, please go out and vote for Dave Foster tomorrow!:

6 – Crystal City
7 – Cherrydale
10 – Wilson
16 – Lyon Village
19 – Rosslyn
20 – Thrifton
