This is not a website for current electors. This is a historical website for the 2008 Democratic Electors in Virginia only. If you want to contact electors from a current campaign, you should contact your state board of elections or the specific party from which state's electors were elected.

2008 was a great year for Democrats in Virginia! On Monday, December 15, 2008, your 13 Democratic Electors cast their votes for Barack Obama and Joe Biden—ending a 44-year Democratic electoral-drought in the Commonwealth.
