Voters in northern Virginia will head to the polls Tuesday for a special election to replace former Del. David L. Englin, who resigned from Virginia’s House of Delegates in the wake of an extramarital affair.
Democrat Rob Krupicka, a current Alexandria council member, is on the ballot with Republican Timothy McGhee and Libertarian Justin Malkin for the vacated seat in the 45th District.
The 45th District includes parts of Fairfax and Arlington counties, as well as Alexandria.
Englin, who was serving his fourth term in the House of Delegates, announced his resignation in June after disclosing the affair. In a letter to supporters, he wrote, “I have concluded that the time has come for my family and me to leave public life.”
The polls in Virginia are open Tuesday from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
