The 2018 Virginia State Elections took place on Election Day, November 6, 2018, the same day as the U.S. Senate and U.S. House elections in the state. The only statewide election on the ballot were two constitutional referendums to amend the Virginia State Constitution. Because Virginia state elections are held on off-years, no statewide officers or state legislative elections were held. The referendum was referred to the voters by the Virginia General Assembly.[1] The amendment easily passed, although final vote totals await the final certification of results by the state board of elections.

Question 1[edit]
