LETTER: Build on success by voting Democrat on Nov. 2

  • 1
LETTER: A letterbox with the inscription Letter to the editor

Readers of these pages in recent months have seen letters presenting the accomplishments of the Democratic majorities in the Virginia House and Senate, and Democratic leadership in the governor's office. As summarized in the concise, well-researched letter by Nancy Treusch in last week’s Fauquier Times [“Democratic leadership has been good for Virginia families,” Oct. 6], these include a strong Virginia economy; improved conditions for workers including a phased increase in the minimum wage (the first since 2009); protection of rights for voting; women and child safety; expanded access to healthcare; and lighter state taxation by removing the limitation on the federal $10,000 deduction cap.

This legislation and more, enacted over the past two years, has clearly bettered the lives of all Virginians, but there is still more to be accomplished. Support our hardworking incumbents and new candidates by voting Democrat on Nov. 2 to build on that progress.

Vote now. The best and safest way to vote is in-person at:

The Fauquier Registrar's Office, 528 Waterloo Road, Suite 200, Warrenton (540-422-8290), now open through Oct. 30. Hours: Monday to Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The satellite voting offices when they open on Oct. 18 and continuing through Oct. 30: at the Bealeton Depot at the Bealeton Library, 10877 Willow Drive North, Bealeton, or at the Vint Hill Village Green Community Center, 4235 Aiken Drive, Warrenton. Hours: Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

If you get delayed, all three offices are also open Saturdays on Oct. 23 and Oct. 30. But go vote now! You will encounter no crowds or lines by voting early. You can be sure your ballot is counted when you insert it to the voting machine.

If you have requested an absentee ballot but not yet returned it, you can bring it, with your identification, to these offices and exchange it for an in-person ballot, which you can then mark and put through the voting machine. Done. Simple.   

Your active participation in this election will be supporting our cherished democracy.

Do not vote for retread Terry. He will push the progressive left agenda just like JOE BIDEN does. Let's solve problems with education, crime, inflation, illegal immigrants (they are here in Fauquier County) brought on by Democrats. Vote Republican. Stop the bleeding out of our prosperity by the likes of Terry McAuliffe and his Left liberal supporters in New York and the Clinton Foundation. Terry wants his Virginia plantation back. I will not be his slave.
