Heads Up: Where You Vote May be Changing

From the Sun Gazette:

County Board members on July 7 are slated to adjust the boundaries of four polling precincts and create the county's 50th precinct, in time for the Nov. 6 general election.
According to the Sun Gazette, the precincts affected will be Clarendon, Virginia Square, Aurora Hills, and Crystal City. A new precinct will also be created, called Crystal Plaza.

The rapid growth of the Wilson Boulevard corridor has already changed my polling place once. Right now I vote at Arlington Arts Center, but we'll see if these changes affect me. I'll just have to make sure I look out for my voting card before the election.

While there are no national races on the ballot this fall, every seat in the Virginia General Assembly is up for grabs, so it's a critical election for Virginia's future. Not only that, the chance to re-draw Congressional boundaries comes around again soon. The party wins control of the House of Delegates and Senate will have the upper hand in gerrymandering Congressional districts.
