Many Virginia Voters Won't Have Choice on Election Day


RICHMOND, Va. (AP)- All 140 seats of the Virginia General Assembly are up for election next month, but many voters won't have much of a choice at the ballot box on Election Day.
Less than half of contests for state Legislature will have more than one candidate and only a small percentage of contested races are expected to be close.
For critics of the state's current electoral map, the lack of meaningful competition is largely a symptom of what they say are unfairly drawn maps designed to benefit incumbents.
Democrats have pushed for new maps to be drawn. But Republican lawmakers said the current lack of candidates is due in part to Democrats not producing candidates.
