Press Release: Martinsville Bulletin

Tuesday, November 6, 2007

Precinct 3 in the city of Martinsville was listed in Sunday and Monday's editions as the Virginia Museum of Natural History.

Ryan Barber, marketing director at the museum, wants to remind voters that Precinct 3 is at the old museum site at 1001 Douglas Ave., which now is known as the VMNH Research and Collections Center. The new museum building on Starling Avenue is not a precinct site.

Polls in the city and elsewhere open today at 6 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.

Additionally, voters might see campaign workers at polls for write-in candidates. Although their names do not appear on ballots, write-in candidates can have workers at the polls to hand out literature, said Henry County Registrar Liz Stone.

"The literature must comply with sample ballot laws and be printed" on paper that is not colored white or yellow, she said.

The handouts also must bear the name of the person authorizing the material, Stone said.
