To the Fairfax County Community,
The 2020 November election is less than a week away. I'm excited by the turnout we have seen. As of last night, over 301,000 ballots have been cast so far in Fairfax County. This is about 53% of the total number of votes cast in 2016. I requested my ballot by mail and returned it to a drop box at the Fairfax County Government Center. Do you know when, where, and how you will cast your ballot this year? For everything you need to know about voting, be sure to check the Fairfax County Office of Elections website. Below, I also include some new information you might find helpful.
On a different note, I would like to congratulate our former Chair of the Fairfax County Board, Sharon Bulova, who has been recognized by the American Public Transportation Association for her leadership and commitment to public transit in our region. Learn more about the award here.
Finally, Halloween is this Saturday. I hope you are able to celebrate safely. The County has guidelines on low, moderate, and high risk activities that you can read here. As always however, be sure to wear a mask!
