2017 Congressional District ReOrganization
What is Happening
Each Congressional District Democratic Committee reorganizes every 4 years. The 20 members are allocated from throughout the district and selected at District Conventions. These Congressional District (CD) members then form the Democratic Party of Virginia’s governing body, the State Central Committee.

In order to attend the District Conventions, you must first get elected as a Delegate at the Norfolk Caucus (“Firehouse Primary”) to be held Saturday, April 15, from 10AM-2PM, at the Academy for Discovery at Lakewood, 1701 Alsace Ave, Norfolk.
