Voters will head to the polls on Tuesday, November 7. Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Sample ballots are printed in this newspaper showing the names of the candidates. Four sample ballots are included – one for the county-wide races and one each showing candidates for the Blue Ridge, Mayo River, and Peters Creek districts.
Registrar Susan Taylor said she is hopeful that at least 50 percent of registered voters will participate. Typically, the number ranges from 40 to 45 percent, she added.
Voters are reminded to bring an acceptable form of identification with them on Election Day, as Virginia law requires that all voters present an acceptable form of identification when voting. Any voter who does not have an acceptable ID may sign an ID confirmation statement.
A registered voter needing to vote early may do so in person in the Registrar’s Office, located at the Patrick County Veterans’ Memorial Building, 106 Rucker St, Rm 216C, Stuart, VA 24171. The office is open Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The final day for early voting is Saturday, November 4, at 5 p.m. For additional information, contact the Registrar’s Office at (276) 694-7206.
Due to redistricting, Patrick County voters may be voting at a different polling location than they have in the past. Voters are encouraged to visit https://vote.elections.virginia.gov/VoterInformation or contact the Registrar’s Office to check their information prior to Election Day.
