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.
