So, it all comes down to this. I'm sure that no matter who wins the Presidential election, (and after the dust has settled from the numerous lawsuits over the results), we'll still continue to hear about it for a while, but I guess that comes with the territory. At any rate, the election is today (Tuesday November 8th), and polls will be open from 7am to 7pm. The Victoria County Elections Office reports that 35 polling places will be open on Tuesday. I got in and out in about 5 minutes this morning so, no problems at all. Maybe it's because we had such a high number of early voters in Victoria County, over 20,000 people voted early. At any rate, here are the polling places, and remember, you can vote at any of these locations.
