Vote November 3rd

This is it! Tomorrow, November 3, we can send a message, and keep moving Virginia forward. We can elect leaders that want to continue to pursue Governor McAuliffe’s pro-business, progressive agenda, and reject those that choose to use their power to bring the Washington style of gridlock politics to Richmond.

These elections matter, and that’s why you have received multiple messages from me. Healthcare, pre-k funding, common sense gun control, and so much more is on the line. If you have not already done so, please VOTE and make sure your friends and families go to the polls as well.

The polls open at 6 am, and close at 7 pm. You can find information about your polling place here. And do not forget that you need to bring an ID with you.

Thank you so much for your continued support. It is my privilege and honor to serve our community in the General Assembly.

Senator Saslaw's Blog



Springfield, VA — Today, the Saslaw for State Senate campaign announced that the Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce's PAC (NOVABizPAC) has endorsed Senator Saslaw. The NOVABizPAC’s board is made up of business leaders from across Northern Virginia, representing a wide range of industries.

“Because of Dick Saslaw's leadership in the Senate, Virginia is a great place to start or grow a  business,” said NOVABizPAC Chair Scott McGeary. “He understands what it takes to diversify our economy and create a strong business climate. The Virginia business community is supporting Senator Saslaw because of his commitment to cultivating a highly skilled workforce, updating our infrastructure, and building a brighter future for all Virginians.”

Senator Saslaw is a successful local businessman in the gasoline and auto service industry. He has led the charge in the state Senate to make Virginia a top business destination. Dick Saslaw has partnered with Governor McAuliffe in an effort to build a new Virginia economy that will create jobs and expand opportunity for Virginia workers.

“It means a lot to have such strong support from the business community,” said Sen. Dick Saslaw, the Democratic Leader in the Virginia Senate. “I will continue fighting to make sure that Virginia remains one of the best states to do business in, and that Virginia families have every opportunity to get ahead. I look forward to working with business leaders across Virginia to create new jobs and establish an economy that generates long-term growth.”

HOLIDAY TRAVEL: We can expect the normal influx of traffic and delays this holiday weekend in our area. If you plan to utilize the 95 Express Lanes on your travels please be aware that there will be several on-road signs to alert drivers of delays, below is a rundown of what you can expect when you head south on 95:


  • Express Lanes travelers will see an advisory sign in advance of the Quantico/Joplin Road exit, which alerts drivers of congestion ahead on the Lanes.  The sign will indicate approximately how far ahead the delays begin, for example “CONGESTION 3 MILES AHEAD”


  • Drivers can use the information on the sign to decide whether to exit the Lanes at Joplin or continue to Garrisonville Road


  • If delays increase, signage before the Joplin Road exit  will advise travelers to exit to the regular lanes using the message “EXIT NOW TO AVOID DELAYS”
