While most of us are focused on the Presidential campaign, there are also congressional races and ballot initiatives that Virginians will be voting on this Nov. 8. Please be sure to research and understand everything that you’ll see on the ballot. (See important voting deadlines & absentee voting locations.)

As of September 14, 2016, two ballot measures are certified to appear on the Virginia ballot on November 8, 2016.

HIGHLIGHTS

Virginia does not allow the initiative and referendum process, so all ballot measures must be referred by the legislature. The 2016 state legislative session ran from January 13, 2016, through March 11, 2016, during which time the legislature had the power to place legislatively-referred constitutional amendments on the ballot. Legislatively-referred amendments can be proposed by either house of the legislature and must be approved by a simple majority of members of both houses during two consecutive legislative sessions. Once on the ballot, amendments must be approved by a simple majority of electors to be enacted.
