Virginia Tech political scientist Karen Hult will be available to discuss election outcomes as Virginia voters consider the future makeup of the General Assembly.

Political experts are watching the Commonwealth closely this year, as the only state where control of the legislature could switch parties.

“There is so much at stake, based on the outcome of a handful of districts,” said Hult. “If Democrats pick up seats in either chamber, they’ll be able to influence change Republicans have blocked for years.  Even more important, If Democrats gain majorities in both chambers they’ll have the biggest voice in what happens with redistricting following the 2020 Census.”

Election analysis from Professor Karen Hult is available for media outlets by contacting Bill Foy by email, or by phone at 540-998-0288.
