<p align="justify">''Located in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States, the state of Virginia is bordered by [[Maryland]], [[North Carolina]], [[Tennessee]], [[Kentucky]], [[West Virginia]], [[Washington, D.C.]] and the Atlantic Ocean. Nicknamed “the Old Dominion,” Virginia is officially known as the “Commonwealth of Virginia.” Virginia is also nicknamed “the Mother of Presidents” due to the fact that eight U.S. presidents were born in the state. Originally established by the Colony of Virginia as the first of what would become The Thirteen Colonies, Virginia’s economy is now dominated by agriculture, U.S. federal agencies and the U.S. military.  While [[Richmond, Virginia|Richmond]] is the state’s capital, the city of [[Virginia Beach, Virginia|Virginia Beach]] is the state’s most populated city. <br><br>Virginia has two members of the [[United States congressional delegations from Virginia|U.S. Senate]], a total of 11 members of the [[United States congressional delegations from Virginia|U.S. House of Representatives]], 40 members of the [[Virginia State Senate]] and 100 members of the [[Virginia House of Delegates]].''</p></td></tr>

Welcome to Virginia on Ballotpedia!


Located in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States, the state of Virginia is bordered by Maryland, North Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, West Virginia, Washington, D.C. and the Atlantic Ocean. Nicknamed “the Old Dominion,” Virginia is officially known as the “Commonwealth of Virginia.” Virginia is also nicknamed “the Mother of Presidents” due to the fact that eight U.S. presidents were born in the state. Originally established by the Colony of Virginia as the first of what would become The Thirteen Colonies, Virginia’s economy is now dominated by agriculture, U.S. federal agencies and the U.S. military. While Richmond is the state’s capital, the city of Virginia Beach is the state’s most populated city.

Virginia has two members of the U.S. Senate, a total of 11 members of the U.S. House of Representatives, 40 members of the Virginia State Senate and 100 members of the Virginia House of Delegates.
