Virginia Gubernatorial Elections 2021

Virginia state elections will be held on Tuesday, November 2, 2021. Incumbent Democratic Governor Ralph Northam is ineligible to run for reelection, as the Constitution of Virginia prohibits the officeholder from serving consecutive terms. Earlier, the elections were scheduled to be held on June 8, 2021. Governor Ralph Northam was elected in 2017 with 53.9% of the vote. He will be term-limited in 2021, as the Virginia Constitution does not allow governors to serve consecutive terms. McAuliffe won the Democratic primary by a wide margin despite the large field of candidates. Virginia attorney general Mark Herring previously announced his intention to run for the governorship but withdrew from the race to seek reelection as attorney general. 

Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax, former governor of Virginia Terry McAuliffe, state senator Jennifer McClellan, state delegate Jennifer Carroll Foy, and state delegate Lee Carter announced their candidacies for the Democratic nomination for the governorship. Virginia attorney general Mark Herring previously announced his intention to run for the governorship but withdrew from the race to seek reelection as attorney general.

Kirk Cox, the former Republican speaker of the Virginia House of Delegates, filed the paperwork to run for the governorship in September 2020. Businessman Glenn Youngkin won the Republican nomination after six rounds of voting at the convention. After initially indicating a brief attempt at an independent run because of the state Republicans’ decision to hold a convention instead of a primary, Chase later returned to seek her party’s nomination once more. Princess Blanding, a teacher, and sister of the late Marcus-David Peters is the newly-founded Liberation Party’s gubernatorial candidate. State senator Amanda Chase announced her candidacy for the Republican nomination for the governorship in February 2020.
