Were You Able to Find Your Correct Polling Location? Election Day Update

 

The Virginia State Board of Elections 1:00 p.m. election day briefing stated that there have been some issues regarding voters going to the incorrect polling location in Fairfax County, for example in Rose Hill. According to the election day breifing, "from the calls the State of Elections is receiving, it appears voters directly affected by redistrciting mostly know their polling place has changed." If you are still unsure of your exact polling location you can use the Google Gadget at www.sbe.virginia.gov and type in your address to get the polling location as well as directions to the new polling location.

Campaign Signs: What are the Rules?

From the County of Loudoun:

Loudoun County’s zoning ordinance provisions require anyone interested in displaying signs on the roadways within the county to obtain a zoning permit. Once the permit is obtained, signs not exceeding four-square-feet may be placed on private property (any parcel of record) upon consent of the property owner. Large billboard type signs are not permitted in accordance with current zoning ordinance provisions. For additional information regarding the sign permit process, please contact Marsha Keim, Zoning Permit Division, 703-777-0648.

No signs are permitted in a Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) right-of-way. Under an agreement with VDOT, Loudoun County removes all signs that have been placed within VDOT rights-of-way.  For additional information regarding the sign collection program, please contact Roger Carroll, Zoning Enforcement, 703-737-8818.
