Were You Able to Find Your Correct Polling Location? Election Day Update

 

The Virginia State Board of Elections 1:00 p.m. election day briefing stated that there have been some issues regarding voters going to the incorrect polling location in Fairfax County, for example in Rose Hill. According to the election day breifing, "from the calls the State of Elections is receiving, it appears voters directly affected by redistrciting mostly know their polling place has changed." If you are still unsure of your exact polling location you can use the Google Gadget at www.sbe.virginia.gov and type in your address to get the polling location as well as directions to the new polling location.

Are You A Weiner, A Whiner, Or A Winner?

With more than 14 million Americans currently looking for work, it is definitely a buyer’s market out there.  Companies understandably want to hire the best candidates they can find.  With so many people to choose among, businesses are looking beyond black-and-white credentials such as education and experience to identify prospective employees who bring something more to the table, such as basic common sense. 

In this regard, New York Congressman Anthony Weiner’s recent fall from grace should serve as an object lesson for anyone who has a job...and especially for anyone who is seeking a job.
