The Smyth County Republican Committee selected a Party Canvass as the process to nominate Republican candidates for Clerk of the Circuit Court, Commonwealth’s Attorney, Sheriff, Treasurer, Commissioner of the Revenue, and Board of Supervisors in the North Fork, Park, Atkins, and Rye Valley districts for the November 7, 2023 General Election.
The pre-filing deadline was Wednesday, March 15 by 5:00pm for any interested candidates seeking the Republican nomination.
Congratulations to the following candidates who are unopposed for the Republican nomination for the office indicated. These candidates advance to the November General Election ballot as the Republican nominee.
The following offices had more than one candidate file. Thus, the nominee will be decided at the Party Canvass. The canvass will be held on Saturday, May 6 from 10am-2pm at the Adwolfe Volunteer Fire Department, 107 Thomas Bridge Road, Marion, VA 24354.
A party canvass (also known as a "firehouse primary") is like a primary election, except it is run by the Republican Party at an established central polling place. During the hours the canvass is being held, those who appear with proper photo ID, sign the pledge to support Republican candidates, and are found to be properly registered voters are given a paper ballot to vote and deposit into a ballot box. The voter will then leave after casting their ballot. At the end of the canvass, the ballot box is opened and the results are tallied on site. The person with the most votes for a particular office is the party's nominee. Also, each candidate will be permitted to appoint observers to witness the canvass while it is in progress and during the vote counting. Rules will be established for the conduct of the canvass.
Note: For a contested Board of Supervisors office nomination, only registered voters from the respective district may vote on the nomination at the party canvass.
