In March, the Commonwealth of Virginia passed a law mandating that municipal elections, including Ashland's Town Council elections, move from May to November.
While Ashland has long enjoyed local elections in May as they provide our community and candidates the opportunity to focus exclusively on local issues, the Town of Ashland is required to change the date of our upcoming Town Council elections in accordance with the new state law.
Tomorrow night (May 4th), members of Town Council will discuss and vote on whether to move local elections to November 2021 or 2022. Watch the meeting live at 7:00 pm on public access Channel 17 or online: https://www.ashlandva.gov/89/Town-Meetings
Residents wishing to provide public input on this issue may attend the meeting in person (masked) or submit questions or comments in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org. A recording will be posted after the meeting on ashlandva.gov.
