The 89th District of the House of Delegates was recently vacated by the former delegate Ken Alexander who replaced Yvonne Miller in the Virginia Senate.
There are currently three candidates vying for the Democratic nomination and no republicans or independents. The Democratic party has scheduled a caucus for October 17, 2012 at the Masonic Temple. Voting will take place between 5:30pm and 8:30pm and anyone can vote. The current candidates are Daun Hester, Lionell Spruill, Jr., and Yvonne Allmond. It appears that the next representative for the 89th district will be the winner of the October 17, 2012 caucus so it is important that you show up at the caucus and vote. The Governor has scheduled the election for December 18, 2012.
The 89th district does not include all of The Greater Wards Corner area. You can view the district on a map here (PDF). Additionally to determine which district you reside in, you can do a search on the State Board of Elections website here.
