Know your polling place and other basic information for Election Day

Voters across Virginia head to the polls Tuesday to elect the next governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general and members of the state House of Delegates. Here's some basic voter information for Loudoun County's voters.

Polls in Loudoun will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Most voters in Loudoun will vote at their normal polling location. You can look up your polling place and related information online at http://www.vote.elections.virginia.gov. Some voters in the Blue Ridge Election District have changed precincts. The move affects about 7,500 voters who originally were in Precinct 313-Pinebrook, Precinct 314- Legacy and Precinct 316-Creighton's Corner. Loudoun voters can check their voting location at http://www.loudoun.gov/polls.

Voters are required to show photo identification at their precinct. Acceptable forms of photo ID include a Virginia DMV-issued driver’s license, a U.S. passport, a student photo ID from a college or university located in Virginia or a government-issued photo ID. Voters who do not have one of these forms of photo ID are eligible for a free Virginia Voter Photo ID Card. More information is online at http://www.loudoun.gov/VoterID.

In addition to the political offices, there will be two Loudoun County bond questions: 1.) Shall the County of Loudoun, Virginia contract a debt and issue its general obligation capital improvement bonds in the maximum principal amount of $81,761,000 to finance, in whole or in part, the costs to design and construct the C.S. Monroe Technology Center/Douglass School Renovations; the costs to design and construct High School Stadium Synthetic Turf and Track Resurfacing; the costs to install Division Security Improvements at 60 schools; the costs of School Bus Replacements and Acquisitions; and the costs of other public school facilities as requested by the Loudoun County School Board? 2.)

Be accountable and vote! If you don’t like all the choices you can write in a choice or even a comment. If we don’t vote then politicians hear that message of lethargy and can act without being accountable. Isn’t that really the reason Loudoun sees hundreds of millions of sales tax per year removed from school support because politicians who swear they represent our best interests don’t even bother to TRY TO REMOVE THIS TAKING via the composite index! Isn’t that really the reason the DULLES AIRPORT parking lot Land is kept by the federal government and not taxed by Loudoun to support our schools? Isn’t that the reason none of our representatives put forth a demand VDOT be forced to maintain Loudoun roads they are responsible for at least at VDOT’s own minimum standards? Isn’t that the reason consultants, architects and lawyers aren’t required to bid for their lucrative contracts with LCPS? Isn’t that the reason the Redskins’ owner, golf courses, HHMI, hospitals, large developers and some private non-profits don’t pay their fair share of property taxes? Stop “just” complaining and send a message you are watching them by voting!!!
