Virginia's 31st Senate district is one of 40 districts in the Senate of Virginia. It has been represented by Democratic Senator Barbara Favola since 2012, succeeding retiring fellow Democrat Mary Margaret Whipple.


District 31 stretches along the Potomac River in parts of Arlington, Fairfax, and Loudoun counties, including some or all of McLean, Langley, Great Falls, and Lowes Island. The sections of Arlington covered include the neighborhoods of Arlington Forest, Arlington View, Ballston, Cherrydale, Clarendon, Courthouse, Glen Carlyn, Lyon Village, Rosslyn, Virginia Square and Westover.[3]

The district overlaps with U.S. Congressional districts 8 and 10, and with Virginia House of Delegates districts 34, 47, 48, 49, and 86.[4] It lies directly across the Potomac River from Maryland and the District of Columbia.[1]
