Election Day is November 3rd, but early and absentee voting is going on right now! If you cannot make it out to vote, you may request an absentee ballot now. If you can get out to vote, you can go early and vote in person right now. Please contact your local Elections office find out where and when you can vote. If possible, I would encourage you to vote in person, either early or on Election Day. Do not take a chance on your vote getting lost in the mail or arriving late if you do not have to.

In addition to candidates running for office, there are two amendments to Virginia’s state constitution on the ballot for your approval.
Constitutional Amendment #1 would establish a bipartisan redistricting commission to draw new legislative and congressional districts next year. I helped write this amendment and believe it will reduce partisan gerrymandering when it comes to drawing districts. I encourage you to vote YES on this question.
Constitutional Amendment #2 would mandate a break on local personal property taxes for veterans who have a 100 percent, service-connected disability rating from the VA. Many localities are already doing this so I am not sure if this will make any difference in your locality or not, but I am sure this will pass easily.
