Fredericksburg 10th in the state in growth of voter registration
The Associated Press today put out a list of the 25 cities and counties in Virginia whose voter rolls have grown at the highest rates in 2008.
Fredericksburg is No. 10 on the list, having registered 940 new voters this year, growing its electorate by 7.7 percent.
Richmond topped the list. King George County took the No. 13 spot, Stafford was No. 16 and Spotsylvania County was 20th.
(We ran an AP story about statewide growth in today’s Region section of the paper. I’d link to the list, but I haven’t found it online, only through an e-mail listserv I receive on statewide news.)
