Henrico County VA

Election 2011

Henrico voters will cast their ballots for a number of local and state candidates Nov. 8, although most races offer little or no competition. But voters will have choices in four county races, as well as a race for a House of Delegates seat. The Henrico Citizen invited each of the 35 candidates for county or state offices who appear on the ballot in Henrico County this year to respond to seven general questions about their views, goals and personal lives. Each was permitted a 500-word response to the questions. The answers of those who responded by the deadline provided to them appear in this section. Some responses were edited to fit the 500-word requirement.
