July 11, 2018 – Hello to all interested in elections in Arlington! The purpose of this blog is to share election-related items of interest. Some topics may cover election processes, procedures, and laws in other states versus those in Virginia. Others may touch on historical items of interest, specifically those related to Arlington and/or Virginia.
The idea for the blog came about as a result of a recent project I’ve undertaken to review and digitaltize several old folders of newspaper clippings found in our office, mostly from the 1960s through the 1980s. In doing so, I’ve come across several items that I think would be interesting to share on our website and social media pages. I hope you’ll agree.
In addition, like many election geeks, I routinely read news articles about elections and electoral issues in other states and even sometimes in other countries. I find that I am frequently sharing some of these differences with friends, family, and colleagues. Some of that information will also end up as posts.
This is my first blogging attempt, and I’m not sure how frequently I’ll be posting, so bear with me as I get into the groove, so to speak!
