Note: Latest post is below.
This coming Tuesday here in Virginia we have election. In Prince William County, in addition to having the opportunity to select our representatives to the General Assembly, we will be voting to fill numerous county offices. So this is an important election.
Because we have not been taught well, many of us only vote in Presidential Elections. Yes, even though it should not being doing so, the Federal Government now spends almost twice as much as state and local governments combined. Nevertheless, most of our daily contact with government still involves state and local officials. Stop and think about it. Who builds our schools, our roads, our prisons, runs our courts, and so forth?
I have shown what my ballot will look like below. What will be on your ballot depends upon where you vote. Visit the Virginia Dept. of Elections. Then click on the center of the web page => Check your Voter Information. Then fill out the form.
Filling out the form will get you to a page where you can verify and update your Voter Information. Here is the tricky part. If you look further on the down the page, you will see what will be on your ballot.
Make certain you vote. Local elections are won by the voters who turn out to vote.
