HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — Virginia’s congressional map changed late last year when the districts were redrawn after the state’s redistricting process.

Many Virginia voters were shifted into new districts, making this year’s congressional primaries and midterms the first elections under the updated map.

Virginia’s new congressional map could leave voters wondering which district they live in now and what’s on their ballot. Voters will pick between candidates in Virginia’s 11 congressional districts and some will have local candidates and issues on their ballots.

In Henrico, voters will see one of two congressional races and four questions on potential county projects.

Henrico voters will be asked four questions on whether to authorize the county to issue more than $511 million in bonds to fund projects.

If approved, the money would go towards renovating and rebuilding schools, parks and firehouses. The bulk of the money — $340,500,000 — would go towards projects for Henrico County Public Schools, including the rebuilding of Quioccasin Middle School.

Henrico ballots will also ask whether the county can use nearly $84 million to construct and improve fire stations and other public safety facilities, $50 million on flood prevention and stormwater drainage facilities, and $37 million on recreation and park projects.

Early voting in Virginia started in September and runs until Nov. 5. Election Day is Nov. 8.
