The 2023 Virginia House of Delegates election is scheduled to be held on Tuesday, November 7, 2023, concurrently with elections for the Virginia Senate, to elect members of the 163rd Virginia General Assembly. All 100 delegates are elected to two-year terms single-member districts. Nomination primaries held through the Department of Elections were held June 20, 2023
2023 Virginia House of Delegates election
Following the 2021 election, Republicans regained control of the House of Delegates that was lost to the Democrats in 2019. They currently hold a narrow majority of 52 seats.
After the 2022 General Assembly session, House Democrats voted via a secret ballot to remove former speaker and then-minority leader Eileen Filler-Corn from the top of party leadership. House Democrats would replace Filler-Corn with Don Scott as the new minority leader.
The 2023 election will be the first election held under new district maps following redistricting as a result of the 2020 census. In 2020, voters overwhelmingly approved a constitutional amendment to create an independent redistricting committee. This committee ultimately failed to agree on a newly drawn map. The districts delegates will be running in were created by two special masters appointed by the Supreme Court of Virginia.
2023 Virginia Senate election
Following the 2019 election, the Democratic Party gained 2 seats in the Senate, and gained control of both chambers of the General Assembly, marking the first time that Democrats held a government trifecta in Virginia since 1993. This was short-lived, however, as Republicans regained the governorship and the House of Delegates in the 2021 elections.
