As 2021 has so far ushered in a new presidential administration— and locally, Charlottesville has a new city manager at the helm— the year will also contain several local and state-level elections. With the weight of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Virginians have the chance to vote incumbent or new voices into legislative and executive power.

Upcoming 2021 elections include Virginia’s next governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general. For governor alone, there are several Democratic and Republican candidates — both established politicians and newcomers — along with a third party candidate.

The General Assembly’s House of Delegates is up for election, with a handful of districts that touch the Charlottesville and Albemarle area.

Within the city of Charlottesville and neighboring Albemarle County, there are two city council seats, three city school board seats, city commonwealth attorney, three board of supervisor seats, and three county school board seats up for election this year.

Key dates will be June 8, 2021 for primary elections and Nov. 2, 2021 will be the general elections.

This page will be updated frequently with election information and candidate profiles.
