The Virginia General Election is tomorrow (Nov. 5), and I want to encourage you to go to the polls and vote!
Be sure you have all the necessary information you need on election day. For information on registration, polling places, and the answers to any other questions you may have, visit http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/elections.
To familiarize yourself with the ballot, take a look at these sample ballots.
***Make sure you bring an acceptable form of identification***
It may also be helpful to familiarize yourself with an important bond referendum that will be featured on the ballot. Fairfax County voters will be asked to vote YES or NO on the $250 million school bond question in the general election.
If approved, the schools plan to use the money to:
- Build two new elementary schools
- Help renovate 22 schools
- 17 elementary schools
- 2 middle schools
- 3 high schools
- Buy land for the South West County High School
- Enhance the capacity of one elementary school and one high school
- Replace or improve infrastructure, such as roofs, major mechanical systems, and parking lots.
For more information, visit the Fairfax County Public Schools 2013 bond referendum web page.
Thanks for voting!
Chairman, Fairfax County Board of Supervisors
