The August 10 program of the Senior Statesmen of Virginia will present a timely opportunity to have your questions about elections in Virginia answered. What is ranked choice voting? What has changed and what remains the same for the upcoming midterm election now that we are out of the pandemic?
The meeting will be held in the Rotunda Room of Westminster Canterbury of the Blue Ridge on Pantops Mountain Rd. Charlottesville. Directions and ample parking info are available at www.SeniorStateesmen.org .
Delegate Sally Hudson (D), 57th House District, represents Albemarle (part) and Charlottesville, and serves on the Finance Committee and the Health, Welfare and Institutions Committee. Sally is president of Ranked Choice Virginia and the force behind the bill passed by the Virginia General Assembly.
Lauren Eddy serves as the deputy registrar for Albemarle County Voter Registration and Elections. She has worked in the department for 18 years, and in her current position for the past 16 years. As a Virginia registered election official, and also a national certified election/ registration administrator, she prides herself on being one of the gatekeepers of democracy.
