    It's conceivable that one person wins the special election and someone else wins the general. I don't see legally how there can only be one vote. We have 2 separate elections here. One to replace Cantor from Nov 4 until January and another on who will represent VA-07 from Jan 2014 to Jan 2016. I can't see how they can possibly decide both with a single vote.

      There will be two votes on the same ballot with (presumably) the same slate of candidates.  One vote will be for the special election, the other for the general.  In theory the winner of the two races could be different, but since the same people are simultaneously voting in both races, the result will be (almost) exactly the same in both contests.

      You matter to them IF YOU VOTE!
