Vote November 3rd

This is it! Tomorrow, November 3, we can send a message, and keep moving Virginia forward. We can elect leaders that want to continue to pursue Governor McAuliffe’s pro-business, progressive agenda, and reject those that choose to use their power to bring the Washington style of gridlock politics to Richmond.

These elections matter, and that’s why you have received multiple messages from me. Healthcare, pre-k funding, common sense gun control, and so much more is on the line. If you have not already done so, please VOTE and make sure your friends and families go to the polls as well.

The polls open at 6 am, and close at 7 pm. You can find information about your polling place here. And do not forget that you need to bring an ID with you.

Thank you so much for your continued support. It is my privilege and honor to serve our community in the General Assembly.

As I am sure you have heard by now, Governor McAuliffe has declared Virginia in a state of emergency because of the inclement weather that our Commonwealth is currently experiencing. Beginning this evening and possibly running through early next week, the National Weather Service is predicting heavy rainfall, high winds, and flooding.

This extreme weather could combine with Hurricane Joaquin, which is presently developing north of the Bahamas. There is the potential for the two systems to create a superstorm similar to the one we experienced in 2012 with Superstorm Sandy. Although this is not expected to happen, the situation is being monitored closely by both the National Weather Service and the Fairfax County’s Office of Emergency Management.

You can follow the Fairfax County Emergency Management webpage for up to date information. Additionally, you can visit my webpage for other important websites and phone numbers in case of emergency.

As always, please stay safe and look after one another.

This November 3rd, we will elect the people that make up the Virginia legislature. There are many important issues facing the Commonwealth. Being an “off year election,” voter turn out is often low.  Please take the time to vote in this important election.  

Today is the start of absentee voting in our Commonwealth. Absentee voting is available in person or via mail between now and October 31st, or via mail.

With changes to the law, many people are eligible for in-person absentee voting. Reasons for voting absentee include, being out of town on November 3rd for vacation or work, having a spouse or dependent who is in the active service, working 11 hours or more outside of the county you vote in, and many other reasons.

The locations for in-person absentee voting can be found at the following websites:

Alexandria Voting Locations

Falls Church Voting Locations

Fairfax Voting Locations

Voting absentee by mail requires filling out an application and return it to your local country registrar, more information can be found here.

When you vote in person, remember to bring a proper photo ID. Learn more about ID requirements by visiting the Virginia State Board of Elections website.

It has been my privilege to represent you at the Capital. I ask for your vote again.  Thanks for your consideration.
