Checklist for the 37th state Senate voter
Here's some final notes about Tuesday's 37th state Senate race between Stephen M. "Steve" Hunt, a Republican former Fairfax County School Board member, and Del. David W. Marsden (D-Fairfax):
Both candidates have raised at least $650,000 in this race, which could help tilt the balance of power in the Virginia Senate. Most of those donations have been in-kind contributions from the respective candidate's political party, including paid staffers, advertisements and office space.
Hunt's major endorsements:
-- Fairfax Coalition of Police
-- Fairfax Deputy Sheriff's Coalition
-- National Rifle Association
Hunt will vote at 6 a.m. Tuesday at Living Savior Lutheran Church in Fairfax Station. Throughout the day, you might catch him at precincts in Springfield before Hunt heads to his Election Night party at Glory Days Grill in Centreville.
Marsden's major endorsements:
-- League of Conservation Voters
-- Sierra Club
-- Fairfax Local Firefighters and Paramedics No. 2068
-- Fairfax Education Association
Marsden will vote at 6 a.m. Tuesday at Cherry Run Elementary School in Burke. He will stop at targeted precincts throughout the day, including Burke, Centreville and Springfield, before wrapping up the day at his Election Night party at Hopsfrog Grille in Burke.
Scattered snow flurries are expected in the Fairfax County area before 9 p.m. Monday, then scattered snow showers until 3 a.m. Tuesday. Snow accumulation is expected to fall below half of an inch, according to the National Weather Service.
Edgardo Cortés, Fairfax County's registrar, said voters can expect polls to be open at 6 a.m., despite any potential school delays or cancellations because of inclement weather.
Because the winner of Tuesday's election will be certified by the Fairfax County Electoral Board that same day, results are expected to come flowing in at about 7:30 p.m., a half hour after polls close. Results will be posted to the Virginia State Board of Elections Web site, Fairfax County's elections Web site and at the Fairfax County Government Center.
