Half of McLean Receives New Voter Registration Cards

Notice of your new congressional district

About half of McLean --- basically the neighbors living south of Dolley Madison Boulevard--- are receiving  new voter registration cards because they have a new congressman.

Remember the Democrats and Republicans drastically changed the boundaries of Virginia's 11 congressional districts. The Republican leaning districts became more Republican and the Democratic leaning districts more Democratic. Redistricting also ensures that the 11 districts are as equal in population totals as possible.

All of McLean had previously been represented by Rep. Frank Wolf (R-10th)). Now the southern half of McLean is represented by Rep. Jim Moran (D-8th).

Approximately 195,000 voters in Fairfax County now live in a new congressional district including many McLean residents.

The cards are only being mailed to these affected voters.

Voters affected by redistricting will receive a new card indicating the change in congressional representation.The voter card is the notice of your new district.

The place where you vote remains unchanged.

In other election/voter matters:

Transition to Registered Voter Number - Some voters still hold a voter information card, which includes their Social Security Number (SSN). The State Board of Elections also mailed new voter information cards to those voters, replacing the Social Security Number with a system-generated identification number. 

If you have not received a new card, but would like to check your voter registration status and information, go to the Virginia State Board of Elections.

In addition, the new cards indicate a language preference. As a result of the 2010 Census, it was determined that Fairfax County now falls under Section 203 of the Voting Rights Act. This requires Fairfax County to provide voting and elections-related materials in English and Spanish.

All of McLean was not under Rep Wolf. I'm in McLean 22102 and I have always had Rep Moran.

And hopefully Moran will be voted out of office and McLean will be represented by Patrick Murray! http://patrickmurrayforcongress.com/

Thank you Allison. Yes a small part of the 22102 zip code was in Rep. Moran's district and remains as part of that district.
