And in Onley, residents will be choosing between two candidates Bill Ferguson and Matt Hart, who are both who are running for the mayor position.

“It’s definitely important that everyone comes out this is one of the few times that you’re able to have your voice heard in this election process no matter how small this election may seem all of this stuff has an impact and because it’s more centered around local government it can impact your life more than presidential elections even,” said Virginia voter Timothy Johnson.

If you haven’t had a chance to get out and vote at one of your local polling places in Accomack just yet you have until 7 PM to do so before the polls close.
