In the past, I have always voted on Election Day. This year is different; I voted early for the following reasons: (1) Voting early reduces the amount of phone calls and mailers you receive as campaigns take you off of their lists once you have voted – it also saves them money; (2) Eliminates the worry that a family/business or medical emergency might happen on Election Day; (3) Reduces opportunity for voter fraud by removing your name from voter rolls as a picture ID is no longer required to vote; (4) But most importantly – it is critical that we end one-party rule in Richmond.

Early, in-person voting commenced on Friday, September 17. Fairfax GOP Chairman Steve Knotts cast his ballot early that morning.
