Montgomery County Registrar Randy Wertz was supposed to be on vacation last week. Instead, he was in the office dealing with the electoral mess state and county officials have concocted. It is almost as if they conspired to make life miserable for him and his team. He has no time to waste assembling the county’s new electoral jigsaw puzzle.
If you want to know which races will appear on your Montgomery County ballot, you can figure it out by looking over the maps below.
Review this map and determine which Montgomery County district you live in. Just try to narrow it down to one or two. You can get more precise in the next step.
Look over these maps to confirm which district you live in and which precinct. Your district determines which supervisor and school board races you will vote in. Also make note of whether you live in or out of a town. If you live in Christiansburg or Blacksburg, you will vote in town council elections.
Hint: If you need a clearer image, download the original PDF from the map pages. There’s a link in the lower right of the screen for downloading.
Look over these House of Delegates maps to determine which House district you live in. The lines have moved around a good bit from the current ones, so don’t assume you have the same delegate.
Hint: Precinct lines on these and the Senate maps are the old precincts. They can help you narrow down to a location, but they do not reflect changes this year.
Finally, look over these Senate maps to determine which Senate district you live in.
If you still aren’t sure because you live near a boundary and the map is not clear, you can contact the Montgomery County voter registrar’s office for help.
