The first election of 2017 is for three seats in the Virginia state legislature, on January 10th. These races are the difference between red or blue majorities. Two candidates, Cheryl Turpin and Ryant Washington have especially strong chances to flip seats. Jennifer McClellan is in a race to keep hers. All of these races will be decided by a few thousand voters showing up for one side or another.
