Here’s the order that City Council candidates will appear on the ballot for the June 8 democratic primary

After a random selection process this morning (Wednesday), the Alexandria Office of Voter Registration and Elections has the order that candidate names will appear on the ballot for the June 8 democratic primary.

The first 11 candidates filed at the same time, and their order was determined by the Alexandria Electoral Board. The names were put in separate film canisters, which were put in a bowl and mixed around. The last two candidates were listed in the order that they filed their paperwork.

In-person absentee voting begins on Friday, April 23, which is 45 days before the June 8 primary. The registrar has sent off the names and currently waiting for approval from the Virginia State Board of Elections before creating a sample ballot, which will include mayoral candidates and candidates for statewide offices.

“Once that has been approved by the state we’ll produce those and get those published,” Alexandria Registrar Angela Turner told ALXnow.

Additionally, since the School Board is an independent body, their filing deadline for reelection is June 8.

The order for Council candidates on the ballot is below.

  1. Alyia Smith-Parker Gaskins
  2. Patrick B. Moran
  3. R. Kirk McPike
  4. John Taylor Chapman (incumbent)
  5. James C. Lewis, Jr.
  6. Amy B. Jackson (incumbent)
  7. Canek Aguirre (incumbent)
  8. William E. “Bill” Campbell
  9. Sarah R. Bagley
  10. Kevin J. Harris
  11. William C. “Bill” Rossello
  12. Meronne E. Teklu
  13. Mark Leo Shiffer

After June 8, the top six vote candidates will move on to the November general election, after which the recipient of the most votes will be named vice mayor-elect.
