In Virginia, Boards of Supervisors govern counties and are elected for four-year terms. Louisa County's Board of Supervisors has seven members, one for each district.

Christopher McCotter is running unopposed for the Cuckoo District seat — a seat that has been held for the last 20 years by Willie Gentry, who announced this year that he would not seek a fifth term.

McCotter is the only candidate certified by the Virginia Department of Elections, though voters can write in other candidates’ names if they choose.

Collectbritain sent McCotter a questionnaire based on more than 200 responses we received to a voter survey. He did not return answers.
