That’s the meaning of elections for mayor and City Council in Norfolk and for City Council and School Board in Chesapeake. Those elected to serve in city governments make the decisions that most affect the daily lives of people who live in those cities.
So take a few minutes to head to a polling place.
In addition to Norfolk and Chesapeake, Hampton Roads has local elections in Hampton, Newport News, Williamsburg, Smithfield, Surry and Franklin. Other localities across the state are also holding local elections today.
