Fredericksburg Electoral Board to consider additional polling place

The Fredericksburg Electoral Board will meet at 10 a.m. Tuesday to consider a request to add a third polling place for Ward 4 while Fall Hill Avenue’s detour is in place, city Registrar Juanita Pitchford said.

Ward 4 candidate Charlie “Chuck” Frye Jr. requested the addition because of the current detour in place on Fall Hill Avenue. The detour is expected to be in place through at least mid-November.

That detour will force voters west of the Rappahannock Canal to drive about five extra miles to reach their normal polling place unless the additional site is approved.

Tuesday’s meeting is open to the public and will be held in the office of the Fredericksburg Registrar, 601 Caroline St., Suite 500-A in downtown Fredericksburg.
