Election Day Results

This Election Day is a turning point: Voters are fed up with politicians who insist on playing politics with the lives of LGBTQ people. HRC has been mobilizing Equality Voters across the commonwealth and across the country to turn out and elect pro-equality champions up and down the ballot.

After the largest investment in a state legislative election in organization history, HRC helped elect a pro-equality majority in both chambers; opening the door for long-stalled non-discrimination protections for LGBTQ Virginians.
