Post #293: Please vote tomorrow, June 11

Tuesday June 11 is the Democratic primary.  Among the offices that are open are the Chairman of the County Board of Supervisors, and the Member of the Board of Supervisors from the Hunter Mill District.

Polls are open 6 AM to 7 PM.  Bring a photo ID.  Even thought this is the Democratic primary, a) any registered voter may vote regardless of party affiliation, and b) it will likely determine who will win these Board of Supervisors seats in the November general election.

This election is marked by developers spending a significant amount of money on behalf of some candidates.  You can see Post #292 for the surprise quarter-million-dollar push on behalf of Maggie Parker in the Hunter Mill District (largely funded by her employer, Comstock Partners), or the nearly-$1M effort to elect Tim Chapman as Chairman, largely self-funded.

The ViennaVotes.com website has access to profiles for all the candidates for the Hunter Mill district.  The Fairfax League of Women Voters has a non-partisan description of the election with links to information about the individual candidates.
