Corrected VA 11 sample ballot/Fairfax County Office of Elections

The Fairfax County Office of Elections says new sample ballots are being mailed to 11th District voters.

Last week, voters in five Reston precincts that are part of the VA 11th received sample ballots that had 8th District information in the race for U.S House of Representative.

Rep. Gerry Connolly (D), who is running unopposed, represents the 11th.

“In an effort to prepare Fairfax County voters for a lengthy ballot this November, the Office Elections prepared a sample ballot mailing for every registered voter in the county,” Fairfax County General Registrar Cameron Sasnett said in an email.

“During the printing of a batch of the sample ballots, the print vendor incorrectly included the 8th Congressional Sample Ballot for a number of voters in the 11th Congressional District. The print vendor has already printed corrected mailers and is expected to have them in the mail to voters by the end of the week.”

The Office of Elections says voters who received the yellow sample ballot mailer should refer to the front of their mailing for their correct Congressional District. If they have a question about your sample ballot, call the Office of Elections at 703-222-0776 (TTY 711) or go to the Office of Elections website.

    Let’s hope people know who is actually running in their districts and who they’re voting for. And more importantly, will vote no matter what!
