Overview of Local, State, and Federal Election Systems 

In 2022, Virginia Beach adopted a 10-1 council system. This new system implemented 10 new city council districts with representatives of each district elected solely by the residents within the boundaries of each district. The Mayor is still elected on a city-wide basis, hence the term “10-1.”  

It is our position that this new system is incredibly beneficial for our local democracy and enhances the representation of all residents. It is especially important that we have a 10-1 system considering that Virginia Beach is the largest city in Virginia by both land area and population. This means we have incredible variation in local geography, business interests, as well as a diverse population of residents. For example, the southern portion of the City is mainly agricultural, and the Ocean Front is very urban and tourist focused. Therefore, it is very appropriate that they each have their own city council representative to advocate for their interests. This same idea applies to all areas of Virginia Beach.  

It is also worth noting that this more representative city council system is in line with how we already conduct both state-level and federal elections. Virginia has 100 House of Delegate Districts and 40 Virginia Senate Districts. These bodies constitute the legislative branch of the Commonwealth, collectively called the Virginia General Assembly. The Governor is elected on a state-wide basis as the head of the Executive Branch.  

Similarly, Virginia has 11 Congressional Districts, each responsible for electing 1 representative for the House Chamber. We also elect 2 Senators on a state-wide basis to represent the Commonwealth in the Senate Chamber. Together, these 2 chambers compose the United States Congress. For Presidential elections, Virginia awards its 11 Electoral College votes to the candidate who wins the state-wide popular vote.
