Hundreds of commuters and other early risers waited quietly, before dawn today, in lines outside 20 schools, churches and community halls as Fauquier’s sharply-run Election Day machine came to life.

At the Courthouse Precinct, five election officials and two high school pages greeted a dozen voters when the Warrenton Presbyterian Church doors opened at 6 a.m.

Other voters quickly followed as Precinct Chief Election Official Jeff Michel and his crew checked them in with iPads. The first group of voters scattered to Northern Virginia, local jobs and diners within 10 minutes.

From Delaplane to Morrisville and Remington to New Baltimore, it will ebb and flow until the polls close at 7 p.m.

The county has 51,002 registered voters. More than 1,909 of them applied for absentee ballots.

Thousands of Fauquier citizens will elect the next county board of supervisors and school board.

The ballot also includes the contested commissioner of revenue race and the unopposed Fauquier commonwealth’s attorney, sheriff and treasurer.

With all 140 seats in a closely divided Virginia General Assembly on ballots today, Fauquier voters will help elect a state senator and three delegates.
