    Actually, voters now vote at their regular November voting places. The two town sites were used during the May elections. So you’ll vote at Beeks, the library, St. Michael’s, or wherever you normaly vote.

    All elections in Blacksburg (aside from primaries) take place in November. Local elections used to be in May, but now are in November where you vote for everything else. It’s been that way for several years now and was moved to be easier for voters and get more people to vote.

    There are plenty more than 2 voting locations in Blacksburg.

    This was poorly written.
