My friend Christine, a teacher in Charlottesville, is on modified city-wide lockdown because of some deranged Trump/NRA fan. http://www.nbc29.com/story/36570188/charlottesville-city-schools-safety-incident
So angry I could spit. But that doesn’t help. So let’s focus on what can – there are 5 days left to register to vote. Talk to your friends, your family, your coworkers, your neighbors, people you meet dog walking. Let’s make Virginia bluer than blue.
Register to vote, update your registration, confirm your voting location, and see the candidates who will appear on your ballot:
• Monday, October 16 is the last day to register to vote or update your registration.
• If you plan to vote absentee, Tuesday, October 31 at 5:00 p.m. is the deadline to request an absentee ballot by mail.
• You may request an absentee ballot in person until 5:00pm on Saturday, November 4.
