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.
