Visualization: Contested House Seats

VPAP's latest candidate list shows that two-thirds of the 100 seats in the House of Delegates will be contested in November, the highest ratio since 2009.

VPAP's latest visualization offers a historical look at the number of contested seats since 2005. It includes a filter to show contested races by Republican- or Democratic-controlled districts. 


Note: 2017 totals are based on VPAP's unofficial list of candidates. The Virginia Department of Elections is expected to release an official list of certified candidates in July.
