2023 Voter Guide for Central Virginia

A purple banner with a logo that says "2023 Voter Guide"

Welcome to Charlottesville Tomorrow’s 2023 Central Virginia Voter Guide!

This guide will contain information about 156 local and state races in Charlottesville and 12 central Virginian counties. (It doesn’t include the greater Richmond area because there are more media outlets there that provide information.)

Our goal with this guide is to help as many people participate in our democracy as possible. First, we got feedback from over 200 of you about what to ask candidates for local offices this year — from boards of supervisors to clerks of court.

As we get more responses from the candidates, we are adding them to the guide. You can enter the address where you are registered to vote to find the ones on your ballot, or scroll though by county, city, town or statewide district.

Enter your full address and then tap the marker that appears on the map. If we have information about the races and candidates available, you can click to see it.

If you are using an iPhone, we’re aware that the maps aren’t working perfectly and are working to fix the issue. In the meantime, please browse or use the map on a larger screen. See other errors or have questions? Please reach out.
