Fairfax Young Democrats are putting together events to help engage young people before the November 7th election. As in-person absentee voting is in full swing until November 4th. It is important that we bring other young people out to the polls this year. On October 18, we will be hosting our monthly happy hour at Tysons Biergarten. It is a great opportunity to meet new people and discuss questions about our excellent line up of local candidates in a relaxed atmosphere. Then, our regular monthly meeting will be on October 26 at the Dolly Madison Community Library. This is another opportunity to discuss candidates and to get the latest information about volunteering in your community. If you have been disillusioned by the recent events over the last year, it is time to get involved to make sure Virginia remains blue.
Are you busy? Are you making a long commute to class or the job in Washington DC? Do you want to help out but you just do not have the time in your schedule? There is one thing you can do that is often forgotten during the campaign season. VOTE! Polls are open on November 7th from 6:00 AM to 7:00 PM. However, you might have a big meeting, a test, or just going to be out of town on that important day. We got you covered. You can vote in-person absentee right now! In-person absentee voting is available until November 4th. There is even in-person absentee voting on Saturdays in your local neighborhoods.

As we get closer to the November 7 elections, Fairfax Young Democrats have been working with our local campaigns to get the word out about the election. The majority of the overall community does not know that there is an election on November 7 or they do not understand the importance of the gubernatorial election versus other national elections. It is very important to make sure we talk to as many people as possible about the upcoming elections. In an effort to help get the word out, Fairfax Young Democrats will be hitting the road to talk to voters and young voters specifically about the upcoming elections. Join Fairfax Young Democrats as we work to elect our Democratic candidates in 2017.
