Voter Information Cards Mailed to All Registered Fairfax County Voters

Voter Information Cards Mailed to All Registered Fairfax County Voters

From Fairfax County:

The Fairfax County Office of Elections is in the process of mailing voter information cards to all registered voters.  Voters are encouraged to take a few minutes to thoroughly review their voter information card as soon as it arrives and before the Nov. 8 General Election.  Due to the recent redistricting, there may be changes in your polling place and/or your state legislative districts and county supervisory district.

Every 10 years, the U.S. Constitution and the Virginia Constitution require redistricting because of population changes and increases.  Often, more polling places are needed and some voters need to be shifted in order to equalize the number of voters in each district.

Are You A Weiner, A Whiner, Or A Winner?

With more than 14 million Americans currently looking for work, it is definitely a buyer’s market out there.  Companies understandably want to hire the best candidates they can find.  With so many people to choose among, businesses are looking beyond black-and-white credentials such as education and experience to identify prospective employees who bring something more to the table, such as basic common sense. 

In this regard, New York Congressman Anthony Weiner’s recent fall from grace should serve as an object lesson for anyone who has a job...and especially for anyone who is seeking a job.
