Prepare and vote: Read bishops’ letter and other VCC resources
In the coming weeks and months, voters will elect members to all 140 seats in the Virginia General Assembly, as well as other offices in some localities. Much is at stake!
Early voting begins September 22. Election Day is November 7. New General Assembly maps are in effect for this year’s elections.
To help you prepare, please visit our Election Resource hub. There you can view, download and print the following materials, three of which are newly released and one of which is re-issued:
- A pre-election letter from Bishop Burbidge and Bishop Knestout
- A Register to Vote flyer explaining how to register, eligibility and key dates
- A New Political Maps flyer to help you find your new districts and the candidates
- A re-issued Four Principles of Catholic Social Teaching resource.
Each of these resources is authorized for parish use and fits onto one sheet of paper for convenient printing. Each is also available in Spanish on our Election Resource hub.
Please review these materials. Share them with family and friends too, and remind them to pray, form their consciences and vote!

In prayer and in public, your voices are urgently needed to bring Gospel values to bear on vital decisions being made by those who represent you.
