Fauquier County has a record 50,888 voters registered and eligible to vote in Tuesday’s “midterm” elections.

County voters will help elect a U.S. senator and two members of the U.S. House of Representatives — in Virginia’s 1st and 5th Districts.

The ballot also will include two proposed amendments to the Virginia Constitution. They would allow tax breaks for real estate prone to “recurrent flooding” and “certain veterans and their surviving spouses and surviving spouses of soldiers killed in action.”

“Officers of Election are not allowed to explain the amendments,” Fauquier General Registrar Alex Ables said. “There will be pamphlets and a poster in each precinct with the official state approved explanation.”
 
Also, the Marshall Precinct polling place will move back to the Ruritan building at 8400 Salem Ave. The precinct’s voters received new cards, reflecting the change, by mail over the summer.

The polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Fauquier has 20 polling places from Morrisville in the south to Leeds in the north.

Those who have absentee ballots must present them at the county registrar’s office in Warrenton by 7 p.m. Tuesday to have them counted.

Virginia law requires a voter to present an acceptable photo ID when voting in-person.  For a list of acceptable forms of photo identification, or to find out how to obtain a free Virginia Voter Photo ID Card, visit vote.virginia.gov.  Voters can also find information about the upcoming election and check their registration status on the site.

Would have been helpful if there was coverage of the Virginia constitutional amendments a good deal prior to the election.
