Voters Warned to Check on Polling Place
A small number of the hundreds of thousands of campaign brochures left on front doors across the state this morning by Democratic volunteers encouraging people to vote directed them to the wrong polling places.
The door hangers, which encouraged people to vote for Sen. Barack Obama for president and former governor Mark R. Warner for U.S. Senate, includes a printed address for the precints for each particular house.
Jared Leopold, a spokesman for the Virginia Democratic Party, said a small number of locations were wrong in some cases across the state, including a portion of the City of Richmond. Democratic volunteers plan to leave updated door hangers on the houses where they made mistakes.
State election officials said today they received reports from several locations across the state that automated calls are also providing incorrect polling place locations.
They warn voters to double check the information by contacting their local registrar's office or visiting the State Board of Elections website at www.sbe.virginia.gov.
