"I voted" sticker. (Photo via Flickr/vox efx)Tuesday, Nov. 3 is election day. Do you know where your precinct is located?

Here is a primer for all things Election Day 2015.

If you are unsure of you polling place, put your address in this polling locator tool from the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.

You need an acceptable form of ID to vote. See a list of ID types from Fairfax County.

Get up to speed with this sample Hunter Mill District Ballot.

In the Hunter Mill District:

Supervisor — Incumbent Cathy Hudgins (D)  is running unopposed.

Virginia Senate — Incumbent Janet Howell (D) is running unopposed.

Virginia House of Representatives — Incumbent Ken Plum (D) is running unopposed.

Fairfax County School Board: Incumbent Pat Hynes is running for re-election against newcomer Mark Wilkinson.

There are also three At-Large School Board seats up for grabs. Here is who is on the ballot:

Additionally, Sheriff Stacey Kincaid is running for re-election against Bryan A. “B. A.” Wolfe; and Board of Supervisors Chair Sharon S. Bulova is being challenged by Arthur G. Purves and Glenda Gail Parker.

Voters will choose a new Soil and Water Conservation Director for the Northern Virginia District and a new Clerk of Courts.

Fairfax County voters will also be presented with bond issues — a $315 million school bond (which would aid in renovations for Herndon and South Lakes High Schools, as well and Langston Hughes Middle School), and a $151 facilities bond. Part of the facilities bond will go towards replacing the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Station at Wiehle Avenue and Sunset Hills Road, as well as a new animal shelter

    (The password is . . . “unopposed.”)

      I’m voting for that Unopposed guy… he can do all three jobs better than the incumbents as far as I’m concerned.

  • Brad

    >is running unopposed.

    Ain’t democracy wonderful?

  • Frustrated

    I’m not going to walk across the street to vote.
    The usual suspects on the left are running unopposed. Those competing–incumbents and challengers (especially in the school board)–are all pushing agendas not related to conveying learning to our youth, improving law enforcement, etc. The bond issues will pass because the usual suspects will vote.
    So what’s the point.

    We can vote for three (3) positions on the non-partisan Northern Virginia Soil and Water Conservation Board. Candidate Scott Cameron has been very active in speaking out on many good issues, including Rescue Reston’s efforts to save the green space at Reston National Golf Course. You can see his policy positions on quite a few subjects at http://www.friendsofscottcameron.com/issues.

    The views and opinions expressed in this post are solely those of the author. These opinions do not necessarily represent those of the Reston Citizens Association (RCA), Rescue Reston, or their Boards of Directors.

    I bet if we all write in Ming the Merciless for Ken Plum’s seat we would have more entertaining columns on Thursday.

    • Ming the Merciless

      Ming suspects that the “Reston elected him so we must print his inanities and delete any negative comments” rule would soon be abandoned in that case.
