Editor:Tuesday, Nov. 5, is a very important Election Day.
Every seat in the General Assembly will be up for consideration. Loudoun County voters will also select four constitutional officers, their local Board of Supervisor and School Board members, and three Soil and Water District Directors. Moreover, four bond questions will be on the ballot. Voting is one way to make a difference in our communities and to ensure that your voice is heard. I encourage your readers to make an election plan.
The League of Women Voters’ election website, VOTE411.org, is a one-stop shop for everything you need for your plan. At VOTE411.org, you can find your polling place and check your registration status. You can also look up your personalized ballot by entering your address. This will show you all the candidates and issues you can vote for this election, along with candidate responses to our nonpartisan questions. VOTE411.org provides voters with the ability to compare candidates side-by-side.
For voters with an approved excuse, in person absentee voting ends Nov. 2. Locations where you can cast your vote include the Loudoun County Voter Registration Office in Leesburg, the Cascades Senior Center in Sterling, and the Dulles South Multipurpose Center in South Riding. Remember to bring a valid photo ID.
Regardless of how you vote this year, you are fulfilling the single most important aspect of our democracy. In this time of great political divide, voting brings us together as Americans.
Anna Kinney, President, League of Women Voters of Loudoun County
