DemDaily: The 2023 Election Calendar! The Updates

July 13, 2023

In the last major election on the calendar, the June 20 Virginia primary elections, voters went to the polls to pick their party's nominees in all 40 State Senate and 100 State House seats.

It was the first time Virginia residents cast their ballots under the new redistricting map, drawn by the Virginia Supreme Court in late 2021 -- which shook up legislative districts. The results delivered wins for progressives in a number of intra-party battles, as well as the defeat of self-proclaimed "Trump in heels" GOP Senator Amanda Chase.

While July granted a reprieve from elections, August launches the sprint to November, including three gubernatorial elections in the crucial off-year elections.

In addition to the Kentucky, Louisiana and Mississippi governors races, there are legislative, mayoral, municipal, judicial, and/or local elections in nearly 40 states. That includes regular elections in eight legislative chambers in four states in 2023 -- the Louisiana State Legislature, the Mississippi Legislature, the New Jersey Legislature, and the Virginia General Assembly.
