ALEXANDRIA, VA – Last night the Alexandria Democratic Committee (ADC) held a virtual straw poll which showed incumbent Mayor Justin Wilson on top against challenger Allison Silberberg capturing 56.2% (226 votes) to 43.8% (176 votes) with 3.6% (19) of the votes held in abstention.

The ADC has almost 400 members and traditionally conducts these polls in person amongst the participants in the room of the regular ADC meeting, but because of the pandemic the unofficial tally was held virtually, and for free, allowing anyone to vote. Welcoming the audience ADC Chairman Clarence Tong said, “Just before the event, I learned over 500 people had registered for this event, making it our largest straw poll ever.”
