The shouting is over, the campaigns are at an end and it’s time for the people to be heard. Polls are open in Fairfax from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. Tuesday.

Where to vote  If you don’t already know where your polling place is, this is a link to the Virginia State Board of Elections that will tell you.

Are you registered? It’s a bit late to ask. If you were previously registered, you should have received a voter’s ID card in the mail earlier this year.
