Election day is 3 November, 2015. Now’s as good a time as any to learn who’s going to be on the ballot.
Start here; the Virginia Department of Elections has a pretty good site.
For the first time in I don’t know how long, we have a choice for our School Board rep; neither of whom is the incumbent.
At-Large School Board seat: Dolly R. D. Joseph, Catherine M. Lochner, J. S. “Jonno” Alcaro
More at the excellent CvillePedia’s page.
Click through to see my sample ballot (I live in the Brownsville district) — there are some big elections, namely the school board, Commonwealth Attorney, Soil & Conservation … dig in, and please, please please, be an educated voter. And a personal request: if you’re not going to be said educated voter, consider not voting.
