Your vote has never had more power.
For the first time in modern history, residents of Virginia Beach will directly elect their council members in a ward system of 10 equally populated districts.
What does that really mean to you? It means your vote has never had more power.
In previous elections, candidates needed nearly 100,000 votes to win a seat on city council. This year’s winners will likely receive less than 10,000 votes each. This allows grassroots candidates to have a fighting chance against establishment candidates with deep pockets.
