With the results in, Arlington’s 2020 election season now pivots to 2021. And here is what will be on the ballot at the local level 12 months hence:
• County Board: Erik Gutshall won a four-year County Board term in 2017, defeating perennial candidate Audrey Clement and independent Charles McCullough. Gutshall’s death earlier this year resulted in the election of Takis Karantonis to fill out the remainder of the term.
• School Board: Four years ago, Monique O’Grady first toppled incumbent School Board member James Lander in the Democratic caucus, then went on to win the general election in a three-way race also contested by Alison Dough and Mike Webb.
• House of Delegates: Pending the results of redistricting, Arlington is likely to continue to have four seats in the House of Delegates, which will be up for grabs next November. Current delegates, all Democrats, include Patrick Hope (the only one whose district is entirely within Arlington), Alfonso Lopez, Mark Levine and Rip Sullivan. The district of Levine is split with Alexandria; the districts of Lopez and Sullivan are split with Fairfax County.
Also on the ballot next year in Virginia will be races for governor, lieutenant governor and attorney general.
