Virginia Has Fewer Minor Party and Independent Candidates for Congress This Year Than in Any Year Since 1938

Ballot Access News

In the November 2020 election, Virginia will have only one independent candidate for Congress on the ballot, and no minor party candidates on the ballot. This is the smallest number of minor party and independent candidates on the ballot for Congress in Virginia since 1938, when there was also only one.

The lone congressional independent this year is David Bruce Foster, in the 2nd U.S. House district. The reason for the much reduced number of candidates is the health crisis.
