The Arc of Northern Virginia and the Autism Society of Northern Virginia are proud to present this series of Candidate Forums in advance of the 2021 General Election.   Election Day is Tuesday, November 2nd, with in-person early voting beginning on Friday, September 17th.

 

We are grateful to the candidates for making themselves available, and the campaign staffers who worked with us to make the often complicated arrangements.  These meetings are rare opportunities to hear the candidates speak and to answer your questions about the future of disability services and supports in Virginia.  We are excited to offer this opportunity fo each candidate to speak about their beliefs, their plans for the future of our state, and their goals to help individuals with disabilities.
