Primary Vote on Tuesday June 9th

Dear Neighbors,


This is just a reminder that tomorrow June 9th is the primary leading up to the November 3 General Election.   Also, I want to remind you that citizens in the Commonwealth of Virginia do not register by political party and therefore, every registered voter can cast a vote in tomorrow’s primary.  This year the Commonwealth of Virginia will conduct only a Republican Party Primary Election.   You can cast your vote at the voting precinct listed on your voter registration card, which will be the same location as last November’s General Election.  The polls open at 6 a.m. and close promptly at 7 p.m.  To obtain information about your voting status, go to  When you reach the Department of Elections Webpage, click on the “Check Your Voter Information” banner.   If you would like to see a sample ballot for your precinct, go to and in the middle of the page click on “June 9, 2015 Republican Primary,” then click on the sample ballot for your precinct. 


Rarely do I become involved with political endorsements.  However, this year I feel it is essential for the good of York County and the City of Poquoson to throw my full support behind Kristen Nelson for Clerk of the Circuit Court.   Kristen has 18 years of experience in the Clerk’s office, has served as a Deputy Clerk, and was appointed by three judges to serve as the Clerk of the Court when the previous Clerk resigned from office.   Kristen’s outstanding expertise in dealing with approximately 800 duties of the Clerk’s office has received praise from many prominent leader in our government to include the Commonwealth Attorney Ben Hahn, Sheriff Danny Diggs, and Delegate Gordon Helsel.


I strongly encourage you get out tomorrow and vote.  When you do, I recommend voting for Kristen Nelson for Clerk of Court.*
