Voters in Virginia's 7th District will cast two votes for in November -- one to fill the remaining two months of former Rep. Eric Cantor's term and one to fill the two-year term beginning in January.[3] Carr will face David Brat and Jack Trammell in the regular election, but Carr will not appear on the special election ballot because he failed to turn in 1,000 signatures within 10 days after the special election was announced.

Signatures are only required from third party candidates. Republican and Democratic candidates did not need to submit any signatures. Instead, David Brat (R) and Jack Trammell (D) were nominated by their local parties.[3] According to Style Weekly, Carr "is likely to file a lawsuit against the elections board Tuesday. He cites a 4th Circuit Court precedent that eases requirements in special elections."[2]

Carr noted that this setback will not change his campaign strategy. He said, “Our entire approach has been to get out and talk to as many people as possible. The only thing that is going to change is we’re going to have to illustrate to voters that they have an option to write me in.”[2]
