Va 1st District GOP Committee Overturns Fauquier Canvass

On Saturday, June 28, 2014, the First District Committee of the Virginia Republican Party took up an appeal of the Fauquier County Republican Committee’s canvass election back in March and voted to overturn the election by a vote of 16-8.

The appeal centered around participation of Democrats and other non-Republicans in the canvass. The First District Committee ruled that the canvass was improper and required that new elections be held with safeguards to exclude those voters who are not qualified to participate under the state GOP’s rules.

The First District Committee vote can still be appealed to the RPV State Central Committee.
